Hi Sergio,

I also experienced some issues with an installation having the entire filesystem 
on NFS. See the thread on this list at 13-5-2014.

I'd suggest you experiment with different locking methods which you can set 
through the install tool.

Which TYPO3 versions are talking about, upgrade from 4.5 to 6.2 I guess?

Afaik, problems occur with concurrent writing of files on NFS. For most files, 
this is unlikely to happen as they are usually only written once and then stay, 
but problems usually arise with files that are constantly rewritten. On 4.5 I 
had issues with js_css_optimizer extension (which I abandoned in the end) and 
with the configuration cache (temp_CACHED*), which I disabled because the hoster 
couldn't move it to a non-NFS drive.
