This error occurs when mount_nfs(8) has attempted to look up your
server's hostname and resolve it into one or more IP numbers first via
inet_addr(3) and failing that then via gethostbyname(3), and still
hasn't managed to get an IP number.
Try putting the hostname and IP number of your server into /etc/hosts
on your client machine, or configure your client machine to use a DNS
machine that knows about your server.
