I have a strange problem with a nfs mounted drive. It's a zfs pool shared via nfs, both server and client use Linux Mint 18.1.
What happens is that when I copy a larger file to the server, the progress bar hits 100 % almost immediately (with some ridiculous speed) and then just hangs before the actual transfer completes. So far I tried two file managers (MATE's default Caja and Double Commander) with the same result.
Interestingly, when I copy in the opposite direction (from server to client) it all works as expected.
I suspect this could be the property of the NFS protocol itself - how it reports on the amount of transferred data or something. I'm not sure.
I have two questions:
Is this normal or is it a bug, possibly?
If not a bug, is there a way to configure it to play nicely with progress bars?
My /etc/exports looks like this:
I also tried async, it didn't make any difference.
