Has anyone faced similar problem? Any solutions to this?
2.6.9? gads, that's old. Is this a vanilla redhat 9.0 install? By "upgrade" did you upgrade the distro or just the kernel?
I might speculate a nfs version conflict. What distro/kernel are your clients using? Can you force nfsv3 on either side? I know there was an NFS bug in a newer kernel (2.6.12 or 16 or 18, don't remember which), but even that detected & connected. How are you trying to connect?
