I use CentOS 5.5 with Xen. I created RedHat 5.3 DomU and exported some directories through nfs.
In clien side (Dom0) I configured autofs for automatically mounting server's directories.
Server side (DomU):


/etc            *,sync,no_root_squash)
/var            *,sync,no_root_squash)
/administration *,sync,no_root_squash)



Client side (Dom0):


/misc           /etc/auto.misc
/-              /etc/
/net    -hosts


/mnt/dns/administration         -rw,hard,intr
/mnt/dns/etc                    -rw,hard,intr
/mnt/dns/var                    -rw,hard,intr

Now, every time I lost connectivity (block all ports with iptables for example) with server, every action in /mnt/dns/* (like ls) will hang the shell.
I tried various combination of soft, hard and intr parameters, but this not change nothing, more of this, even if I mistake in name of parameter (write int instead of intr) there is no any error in any place...

Any one knows what I need to do?

Thank you for ahead.
