long delay mounting nfs share
At boot time, two of my Linux (RedHat 8.0 and RedHat 9.0) machines mount an nfs share exported by a Mac OS X (10.2.5) machine; the mount information is specified in /etc/fstab. The mount succeeds, but it takes about four minutes to happen. Once it's done, the mount is fine; it's just really slowing down my boot process. The same delay happens if I umount the share and redo it with a mount command from the shell. On the RedHat side, the location of the share is specified with an IP address, so it's not a DNS problem. Now:
*If I try to mount the Mac OS X share on another Mac OS X machine, it succeeds immediately.
* If I export a share on one Linux machine and mount it on the other, it succeeds immediately.
* I'm having trouble mounting the Linux share on a Mac OS X machine, but I've seen this before, and Linux-Linux shares didn't have this problem then.
Arggh. Any advice?
