NFS mounting problem

I am enclosing the log file for the NFS mounts which I encounter in a
particular machine, when I do nfsstat it says that nfs server is already
active. Also it shows that all the deamons rpc.montd|statd|biod are running.
Where exactly could be the problem? Thanks a lot in advance

Re: NFS mounting problem

Hi, I am not sure what's your problem but if you run
"cmviewcl -v" and check that you Highly available
package is up and running, then you can nfs mount
the filesystems from your other hosts by using:
mount nfs:/ , provided
"nfs" is your package name. You can use the package floating IP address
"" instead of the package name and the filesystem/s you're
exporting should be in the XFS[@]array inside your control script, ie.
/ect/cmcluster/nfs/nfs.cntl if you followed default name convention.

If your problem is that the package doesn't start,
check that the processes being monitored by
"/etc/cmcluster/nfs/nfs.mon" started before restarting
the package. Just in case, make sure you're starting
the MC/Service Guard packages from run level 3.
