Please add your comments to this bug:


So far the problem occurs with SUN, HP-UX, DEC Alpha and now IRIX clusters. It would be nice to see this resolved before it gets rolled into the mainstream RHEL release.

I am having a similar problem, but with an IRIX nfs cluster, so
hopefully we can triangulate.

The linux client is, of course, Fedora Core 6, all patched up to

The NFS server is part of a CXFS/Failsafe cluster, and I can mount
shares on the linux system if I use the base hostname/IP address, but
not when I attempt to mount via the IP alias address.  The reason for
the IP alias is to allow disconnect/relocation of cluster shares
among cluster nodes (ie, move the filesystem export from one server
to another)--that's failover.

I'm currently thinking it's a security "feature" in FC6. 
I'm trolling the newsgroups, looking at tcpdump/snoop and
rpcinfo output.
