Can you post more information? What happens when you ping from your NFS client box to the NFS server? How about a traceroute? Does DNS resolve a FQDN for the NFS server? –  uther Jan 9 '13 at 16:36
Yes, the ping is successful with response time 0.150 ms, the filer is addressed by a FQDN and not an ip address, traceroute succeeds with just one intermediate hop. –  Ramkumar Gokarnesan Jan 10 '13 at 11:57
I am just throwing this in but I am sure you know that RHEL4 is end of regular lifecycle. –  Dejan Jan 11 '13 at 14:41
