> Is this output untruncated? Is df really df or an alias to 'df -t nonfs'?

Yes, it really is the untruncated output of "df -h". I also tried the "df -t
nonfs" and it gives exactly the same output as "df". What are you expecting
that is not present in the output ?

Bingo!! That is exactly the problem. An NFS mount was hiding a 17G local dir
which had an old copy of the entire NFS mounted dir. I guess it must have
been written incorrectly to this standby server by RSYNC before the NFS
mount was put in place. I will add an exclusion to rsync to make sure it
does not happen again even if the NFS dir is not mounted.

Thank you for your help, you have saved me much time rebuilding this server.
