portmap failure

hi in order to configure nfs server

mkdir /vm_shared

my subnet :

service nfs restart
chkconfig nfs on
exports -r
showmount -e

and in client system
show mount -e

mount clntudp_create:RPC Port mapper failure

pls solve this
hi every body , in the two systems i have installed xcp , in order to migrate the vm , i created a common storage in one name vm_shared and in /etc/exports file i have made
/vm_shared *(rw, no_root_squash,sync)

but i could not be able to access the common storage from second system.

so for nfs i restarted the nfs and portmap
and exportfs -v every thing is working well in system one

to mount from system 2 i tried the following command
mount /vm_shared
its showing the following errors
mount to NFS server failed: sytem Error : connection refused

even i stopped the firewall by..
service iptables stop
please solve this problem, so that both the system have to access the common storage

Hi, r. g.,

Can you let us know which version of linux you are running on your client and server sides?

Generally, I think your client is not running the portmapper. Testing for that will depend on which flavor of linux you're using.
