i m working as a linux administrator in a software comapny. i have a task to nfs configuration. i m using slackware linux. i configruation two nfs server and using static ip. i exported a directory such as /data in one nfs server1 and another is /tmp in nfs2 server. i want to configure such that when some directory or file will create in /data directory, the files will show the other nfs server /tmp dirctory and vice versa.

the configuration of two nfs server
one nfs server ip address is
#vi /etc/exports
#exportfs -av
#/etc/rc.d/rc.nfsd restart

another nfs server is
#vi /etc/exports
#exportfs -av
#/etc/rc.d/rc.nfsd restart

then i have entry in first nfs server /etc/fstab file /data nfs defaults 0 0

then i entry in 2nd nfs server /etc/fstab file /tmp nfs defaults 0 0

after that i tried mount -a in 1st nfs server
it ran well. the file of 2nd nfs server show data directory.
but when i m running mount -a in 2nd nfs server, a error message is display
i.e. mount: failed, reason given by server: Permission denied.

plz help me and give me any idea how to configure these two nfs server mapping each other.
