Additional info:
When i updated to nfs-utils-1.1.4-6, my nfs shares became unmountable. I use an nfs share on my fedora 10 host as the root filesystem of an embedded system.
after updating nfs-utils the board is no longer able to boot since its not being able to mount the nfs share throwing the forllong message

Root-NFS: Server returned error -5 while mounting /home/sameersbn/workdir/filesys         
VFS: Unable to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy.                                      
VFS: Cannot open root device "nfs" or unknown-block(2,0)

After downgrading to nfs-utils-1.1.4-1, everythings alright

Are your clients' IP registered with DNS? If not you are hitting bug #480420 which was marked as a duplicate of bug #480223.
Comment 2 Sameer Naik 2009-01-29 23:35:47 EST
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.
Comment 3 Axel Thimm 2009-01-30 06:37:27 EST
Then it's the same bug as bug #480420. All these reports are gathered now at bug #480223.
