Unfortunately I ran into the same situation concerning the error message
above. I *was* root when it happened. I thought perhaps the problem was
that I was *su'd* to root, so I connected a monitor to the client,
logged in *as* root then tried to mount the remote share (from my office
server). Still the same result.
To further complicate (or simplify) things, *both* machines are
5.3-RELEASE, and in fact the machines themselves are as close to clones
of one another as you can get. I mention this because inconsistencies
between local conditions on both machines thus becomes a non-issue.
Software wise, if I install or upgrade something on one machine, minutes
later I do the same on the other. Ditto portupgrades...ditto everything.
Six weeks later I still cannot accomplish the apparently (maddeningly)
trivial exercise of mounting an NFS share from one machine to another.
