are you root when trying to create the file? if so you'll need the
option no_root_squash in the exports file. otherwise root will be
denied access. also, don't trust the mount options on the client,
if it says rw for nfs that doesn't actually mean it's rw. this
can apply to other filesystems too. another thing would be to
check the logs on the server for anything and be sure your uid
has write access to the directory that your trying to write to,
keep in mind that the root of the mount point inherits the permissions
of the remote system when the filesystem is mounted on that
