It is said to be because statd or lockd are not running ...
I believe they both need to run on the server and the lockd
on the client.
However having said that I have a diskless client and I kept getting
that despite having both running, and only fix was to mount with
option nolock ....
I dont know if it is connected but some appns seem to want to use
flock and some fcntl but nfs only supports fcntl (and I'm not sure
that works either).
