This is Netware 6.5 SP1.1B running on a 2-node cluster sharing 2 disk
volumes, both NFS exported. Although the volumes mount fine, they tend to
take a few minutes to work. I often get these messages on a Solaris box:

# mount /home/vol1
nfs mount: gummo1:/vol1: server not responding : RPC: Timed out
nfs mount: retrying: /home/vol1
nfs mount: /home/vol1: mounted OK

Sometimes it won't mount at all and keeps saying that RPC Timed out. When
this happens I CTRL-C the command, re-run it and it usually works.

So my question is what could be going wrong? All the RPC services look
complete on the Netware cluster node:

# rpcinfo -p gummo1
program vers proto port service
100000 2 udp 111 portmapper
100000 2 tcp 111 portmapper

100003 3 tcp 2049 nfs
100024 1 udp 32778 status
100024 1 tcp 32778 status

The Solaris mount options are left as default:

mount -F nfs gummo1:/vol1 /home/vol1
