check contents of /etc/auto.misc for /opt/ltsp. Comment it out if found
In fact do a:
grep -R ltsp /etc/*
and see where ltsp is referenced.
Also do a
lsmod | grep nfs
and make sure the you get something like:
nfsd 274672 13
auth_rpcgss 48594 1 nfsd
nfs_acl 12741 1 nfsd
lockd 93540 1 nfsd
sunrpc 256499 29 nfsd,auth_rpcgss,lockd,nfs_acl
If no nfsd, then BINGO! Just run modprobe nfsd and service nfsd restart
