Hi all,

we are in a critical situation where our Lustre is rendered completely inaccessible.

We are running Lustre 2.12.5 on CentOS 7.8, Whamcloud sources, MDTs on ldiskfs, OSTs on ZFS, 3 MDS.

The first MDS, running MGS + MDT0, is showing
### lock callback timer expired
evicting clients, and
### lock on destroyed export
for the same client, as in

Mar 10 09:51:54 lxmds19.gsi.de kernel: LustreError: 4779:0:(ldlm_lockd.c:256:expired_lock_main()) ### lock callback timer expired after 450s: evicting

Eventually, there is
### lock timed out ; not entering recovery in server code, just going back to sleep

Restart of the server does not help.
Recovery runs through, clients show the MDS in 'lfs check mds', but any kind of access (aka 'ls') will hang.

Any help is much appreciated.
