Re: NFS mount problem
NFS remembers the ip and hostname pair of the clients
and somehow tries to match it next time it
authenticates. To clear the entries in
/var/lib/nfs/xtab to the following on server.
#exportfs -u <ip-of-router>:/data
#exportfs -u <router-fqdn>:/data
Or otherwise just do
Hope that solves it.
Try following commands on server.
