    SubjectKernel 2.4.21 or RHEL AS3 Bug under Taroon?
    I have a quad-cpu server running RHEL AS 3, Taroon that acts as an NFS 
    server for some other machines.

    It had a 390 uptime when the problem occured.

    Essentially, the directory paths it serves out stopped working, attempting
    to mount the directory on two client boxes results in:

    box1# mount rhelas3_box:/share1 /mnt/share1
    mount: RPC: Program not registered

    box2# mount rhelas3_box:/share2 /mnt/share2
    mount: RPC: Program not registered

    My guess as to what happened is portmap died on the server and then the
    rpc commands could not be established between the server and the clients.

    The options used for the mount are as follows:
    rhelas3_box:/share1 /mnt/share1 nfs
    rhelas3_box:/share2 /mnt/share2 nfs

    On the server in /etc/exports, the shares are below:

    Is this more of a kernel issue or specifically the portmap daemon? I have
    not seen this error in the past where NFS mounts randomly die, disappear
    or fail to work.

    Other than checking the logs during the time of the failure, what is the
    best way to begin troubleshooting this issue?
