Are your clients' IP registered with DNS? If not you are hitting bug #480420 which was marked as a duplicate of bug #480223.

The nfs clients ip is acquired via DHCP and there is neither a nameserver entry either on the DNS Server nor on the Nfs Hosts /etc/hosts file. As mentioned in the bug report, the nfs mounting was happening perfectly until i upgraded nfs-utils. Right now i have downgraded back to the release version of nfs-utils and everythings perfect.
