netfs hangs

ascray asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
Am setting up several new rhel6 systems.  Systems "A" is a nfs server.  System "b" is client.
Have exported lots but never run into this problem.  Exportfs is clean - no error in exports.  
On client, cannot get connectio.  Get no error messages, nothing. Manually ran "service netfs restart" and it hangs, eventually terminaging with the error "Mounting NFS filesystems:  mount.nfs: connection timed out.".  Thought maybe hosts.allow, and added to each client and server side "portmap, mountd: 172.16.132. "  No difference.  Verified the IP addresses of both servers in hostfile (intentionally static).
Any ideas?
