thanks for your answer, I haved stopped nfslocking and the nfsd and
removed /var/db/statd.status. After restarting the daemons everything
worked as expected for about 5min...afterwards the following error

Jan  1 19:37:13 proteus rpc.lockd: no matching entry for hostA

So instead of updating the nfsd I have decided to upgrade to the latest
release 3.0, because I would like to enjoy nic-bounding and a stable
working nfsd.

As I have already mentioned before, I am running NetBSD 2.0.2 on a
AS1200 system, with kernelized raidframe enabled and having / on a 2
disk raid0 mirror. Now I am quite unsure on how to start upgrading. So
far I have downloaded the Alpha ISO and red throught the INSTALL.html,
especially through the upgrade section. But there is nothing mentioned
about how to handle kernelized raidframe systems. I am bit afraid of
crashing my system...

I never did an upgrade befor so any hints and help on this topic would
be greatlly appreciated. Maybee anyone has been in the same situation
and is willing to share his experience.
