SUMMARY: Stale NFS file handle VCS-5 Solaris 10

My problem was that when the NFS group would fail over to another node
it was bringing up IP before the share so when the client reconnected
the share was unavailable or in transition.

Thanks to Vikash Gupta for his reply.

I linked the IP to the share so that the IP would wait for the share
and all is well.
