I am using SUSE 11.2. And I am really baffled with a strange NFS problem. I hope some experts can help me here.
I have set up the fstab on the client and exports on the server correctly, because if I manually run
# /etc/init.d/nfs start
Starting NFS client services: sm-notify done
I can see and use the NFS partition perfectly, there is no problem at all.
But nfs cannot successfully start at boot. In yast, I have enabled nfs in "System Services (Runlevel)" at runlevel 3 and 5. So it should run automatically, but I always get the following error message:

Can someone help here? Thanks a lot in advance!
