Fedora 17 - nfsinit mount error: : Bad file descriptor

Recently upgraded to Fedora 17 and attempted to run a build over NFS. Set up exports and made sure that the firewall was set correctly but seem to get an nfs error as can be seen below..

RAMDISK: squashfs filesystem found at block 0
RAMDISK: Loading 48903KiB [1 disk] into ram disk... done.
VFS: Mounted root (squashfs filesystem) readonly on device 1:0.
Looking up port of RPC 100003/2 on
Looking up port of RPC 100005/1 on
VFS: Mounted root (nfs filesystem) on device 0:11.
Trying to move old root to /initrd ... okay
Freeing unused kernel memory: 160k freed
mount: failed, reason given by server: Permission denied
nfsinit mount error: : Bad file descriptor
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
Core of 0 bytes written
Rebooting in 3 seconds..! 00000000

Its fine now, panic over . Following the advice of a colleague to initially change to rw in /etc/exports turned out to be the culprit as the same permissions should be used for the client and server and the client was set to ro.
