Redhat NFS trouble

The difficulty is that we have to exportfs -auv; exportfs -av to get
mounting (both static and auto) to work.  It gives "permission denied"
when trying to do a static mount.  getfh() was failing too, according
to an strace of rpc.mountd.

Jed has an RHEL 3 server having trouble with an FC1 host.

Jed also has an RHEL 3 server having trouble with a Redhat 9 host.

Jed and I just looked at an RHEL 3 autofs problem.  He changed his auto.u
NIS map, but autofs did not detect the change, and continued to try to
mount from the previous server, which is down.  The autofs man page says
autofs should detect a map change automatically, but it wasn't.  We tried
killing the automount processes, but then autofs refused to restart - the
/etc/init.d/autofs start script said it was starting autofs successfully,
but then checking in ps revealed that there was no automountd running.
We finally had to reboot, and then all was well.  2004-10-19.
