latex "File ignored" not found on nfs ( isilon )

You are unable to compile latex files (i.e. latex myreport.tex) on an nfs drive but they compile correctly from the local disk. You receive errors such as "File ignored" or "no found". In my case this occurred when using an Isilon. The solution is to switch file ID size from 64bit to 32bit on the isilon configuration. "File Sharing"->NFS->"Edit Settings" on the Isilon web configuration.
