[lustre-discuss] Permanently disabled OST causes clients to hang on df (statfs)

I'm seeing what appears to be LU-4397<https://jira.hpdd.intel.com/browse/LU-4397> on a newly installed Lustre 2.8.0 (CentOS 7) system.  I disabled an OST on the MGS using lctl conf_param data-OST0001.osc.active=0, and the clients can mount and use the file system, however df on the clients hangs for about 100s before returning the results.  Setting lazystatfs using lctl conf_param data.llite.lazystatfs=1 resolves the issue.

Interestingly, CentOS 6 clients don't have this issue, only CentOS 7 clients.

Also of note, CentOS 6 clients show the OST as Inactive, but the CentOS 7 clients don't (note data-OST0001 in these two listings).
