Do you need nfs, if not, disable the service completely.

NFS is a Network File System that is commonly used in Linux/Unix ... although I'd be quick to add that it probably [i]shouldn't[/i be anymore. There are other, more secure protocols available for file-sharing.

If you don't know what it is, don't bother. Just turn it off.

Mad Scientist has put this on another thread. I copied here. I used following command to turn off nfs and nfslock. It works. After you reboot system, you will not see that error. Try it.

log in as root:

chkconfig --level 2345 netfs off
chkconfig --level 2345 nfs off
chkconfig --level 2345 nfslock off
