now I dont exactly remember if the hosting OS was at RHEL6.2 and mounting OS was Pre RHEL3 or the flip side, but we had to explicitly indicate a nfs version number to communicate without problems. Do you have a similar scenario?
I have similar mounts, but I don't have to specify the nfs version to use. Procedure was just like any other machine for me. Set up the clients' hostnames in /etc/hosts on the server, set up the clients you want to be able to export to in /etc/hosts.allow under portmap, lockd, rquotad, mountd, and statd, set up /etc/exports on the server like so: "/home/user 192.168.1.0/24(rw,sync)", restart exportfs, and then mount it on the clients like: "server:/home/user /home/user.server nfs rw 0 0". It works the same in reverse (mounting an NFS v3 server on an NFS v4 client) as well.
