RE: NFS mount hangs

This hit one of my clusters recently (Fedora core 3). 
/etc/init.d/iptables stop on the CLIENT  then a remount worked fine. 

Obviously a workaround not a solution but one I'm happy with at the
moment, given the topography of my cluster!

Hmm... could be a bug on the OSX server as well?  On the client, if you
do an strace -p on the mount process, what do you see (when it's locked
Or maybe it's deadlocked waiting for some sort of IO?

Just brainstorming here, but maybe you could leave a tcpdump running and
catch this when it happens and see what part of the negotiation
succeeded and what part failed... perhaps help isolate whether the
client or server is to blame.
