  • The command(s) you were trying to run
  • The exact error message(s) you saw, and/or symptoms encountered
  • Which kernel versions are you using on the client and server?
  • Are you using any of the security options?
  • Results of `exportfs -v` on the server

  • tcpdump
  • system trace
  • Which versions of acl, libgssapi, libevent, librpcsecgss, nfs-utils, and util-linux?
