rhel4 2.6.9-5.0.5.ELsmp nfs mount fails, server is down

I have been running into this error and not sure how to fix. Any ideas?

[root@pcrl-dev02-db ~]# uname -a
Linux pcrl-dev02-db 2.6.9-5.0.5.ELsmp #1 SMP Tue Apr 19 22:54:25 BST 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

[root@pcrl-dev02-db ~]# mount -o nfsvers=2 -t nfs /mnt/ora_apps_stage/
mount to NFS server '' failed: server is down.

[root@pcrl-dev02-db ~]# mount -t nfs /mnt/ora_apps_stage/
mount to NFS server '' failed: server is down.

[root@pcrl-dev02-db ~]#

Thanks in advance.

This error is pretty self explanatory, your machine can't contact to mount the remote filesystem. If the machine is up and running, check that NFS services are started and there are no firewall or hosts.{allow,deny} rules blocking the connection.
