This seems to indicate that the NFS server is not running or not working. What have you done to confirm that it is? Since no messages about a client connection attempt were left in the NFS server log, I am suspicious that the server is not running. The messages from the kernel look sensible in that context, and the kernel commandline args look okay to me.

Is it possible that the NFS connection is being firewalled?

Hello all

We mounted the root file system using ramdisk. We are proceeding further using that and are not planning to look at the NFS for now.

Thanks for all the time and help,
