Description of problem:
Customer is getting an error when trying to NFS mount a sub-directory from a Solaris client. The glusterfs logs are attached.
There was a suggestion to use "mountproto=tcp" option but that is not an available option in Solaris.
gluster> volume info
Volume Name: tvol1
Volume ID: 6faf2030-fea4-4398-a039-1d29999d8bae
Number of Bricks: 1 x 2 = 2
root@nysolsbx1:~# mount -o proto=tcp,vers=3 nfs://10.125.74.106:38467/tvol1/gino /mnt
nfs mount: 10.125.74.106: : RPC: Program not registered nfs mount: retrying: /mnt
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHS 2.0 Beta2.
For now, we only have a workaround:
Thank you for the workaround, it works fine.
Can we expect a patch in the future release to avoid this procedure ?

For now we have the workaround mentioned above. We won't need the workaround when we implement the non blocking UDP-layer. Right now we have only TCP implementation. Solaris nfs client uses UDP for MOUNT operations.

Based on discussion with Sayan, concluded this is not a supported OS.
