Direct mounting was the problem in January. See the thread "Also having
NFSv4 problems" on this list Jan 03-04, 2010. autofs was the fix, and
manual mounts still don't work.

Reviewing those posts, however, I discovered that the nfs service has
been disabled (w/chkconfig) on all F12 and F13 clients. How that
happened is a head-scratcher because nfs must be running on all local
nodes to gain yum access to fast repos on the server.
