NFS mount requests going though the Virtual Interface

Scenario:-

An NFS Server, server exports an NFS filesystem called /ignitebkp to an NFS client, client.  Share rw access & mount access are given to client only.  

 

The client has a primary interface (lan26) and multiple virtual interfaces (Yes, service guard packages).  

 

Problem:-

mount permission denied on client.  On examining the mountd.log on server, I see that the requests to mount are coming from the virtual interface and not from the IP address of client.  How can I get the client to send the request for mount and all future access through its primary interface which actually resolves to client in DNS?
