Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 81737
etc/hosts entries prevent nfs (and telnet) from working

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.79C-CCK-MCD [en] (X11; U; SunOS 5.8 sun4u)
Description of problem:
Entered as an NFS component error, but I suspect is more widespread.
With local HOSTS entries, NFS mounts fail with RPC portmap error using host
name or IP address. (Similarly, Telnet fails with connection refused.) Ping
Remove the HOSTS entries and NFS/Telnet works fine with IP address. All worked
fine with redhat 7.1
I've seen comments about a bug that sounds similar and which was preventing some
sites (including redhat) migrating to 8.0, but can't find reference to this on
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. remove entries in etc/hosts - works
2. add entries to etc/hosts - fails
Actual Results: nfs mount fails with RPC portmap error.
Expected Results: nfs should have mounted remote filesystem
I think this is probably a duplicate of 76543.
