Setting up netgroups file?

Currently client1 and client2 mount /export/home from the server using :-

share -F nfs rw=client1:client2 /export/home
(on the server)

When I use the /etc/netgroup file and then push it to the clients (nis):-

allclients  (client1,-,-),(client2,-,-)

and change
share -F nfs rw=allclients   /export/home
(on server)

I get "permission denied" when I try to mount it on the clients. However, the clients do get the netgroup file (ypcat netgroup on the client shows this)

What else am I forgetting to do here?

First of all you have an error in the sintaxis, your netgroups file should read:

allclients  (client1,-,-) (client2,-,-)

the commma between the definition of your machines is not necessary (actually is wrong), each definition should be separated by spaces or tab characters.
