We're seeing apps like nginx and php-fpm error out occasionally (and temporarily) while opening good files from a connected NFS mount:

php-fpm error example:

2017/05/20 22:53:09 [error] 55#0: *6575 FastCGI sent in stderr: "PHP message: PHP Warning:  getimagesize(/www/newspaperfoundation.org/html/wp-content/blogs.dir/22/files/2017/05/19-highest-honors-1.jpg): failed to open stream: Input/output error in /www/newspaperfoundation.org/html/wp-content/plugins/mashsharer/includes/header-meta-tags.php on line 271" while reading response header from upstream, client:
192.168.255.34, server: www.dailyrepublic.com, request: "GET /solano-news/fairfield/highest-honors-commends-students-with-4-0-and-higher-grade-point-average/ HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://172.17.0.3:9001", host: "www.dailyrepublic.com"

nginx error example:

2017/05/20 23:22:32 [crit] 56#0: *712 open() "/www/newspaperfoundation.org/html/wp-content/blogs.dir/24/files/2017/05/Tandem1W-550x550.jpg" failed (5: Input/output error), client: 192.168.255.34, server: www.davisenterprise.com, request: "GET /files/2017/05/Tandem1W-550x550.jpg HTTP/1.1", host: "www.davisenterprise.com", referrer: "http://www.davisenterprise.com/"

During a temporary error, I can ls and see the file exists with correct permissions. The image eventually becomes OK after a long while. Other files return OK without input/output errors.

There's not much logging I can find to document the issue. But enabling rpcdebug I see a lot of messages like these around the time of errors:

In particular, I feel like I only see this message for files that are erroring out:

May 20 16:10:07 tomentella kernel: NFSD: nfsd4_open filename 19tommeyerW.jpg op_openowner           (null)

Any ideas on what might be causing the input/output errors?

Client mounts using the following:

mount.nfs4 -v -o proto=tcp $NFSMASTERHOST:/srv/data /srv/data

Centos 7 with updated packages. The error is "new" with few server changes recently. I think perhaps my recent update to system packages may have been the trigger for this change.

Because the problem goes in and out for some images, I'm able to somewhat watch the logs and compare/contrast. Here's an example of it going from OK to bad when grepping on a particular image name:

    the error code 10011 corresponds to error EXPIRED. The reason can be client freeze for longer than 60 sec, network issues, unexpected time jumps o bug in the server or client. – kofemann May 21 '17 at 8:16

The problem appears to be related to duplicate local IPs behind docker hosts. Docker assigns two containers the same internal IP (e.g. 172.17.0.4) the NFS server can't figure out which client to respond to, taking out both clients in some cases. It's apparently a long-existing issue in the RHEL implementation as I was able to find a bug report documenting this in Centos 6 (currently still effecting me in CentOS 7.3).
