I just installed distributed gluster FS on 2 CentOS 5 boxes. install  
and configuration seemed to go fine. gluterd is running. firewalls/ 
iptables are off.  however for the life of me i cannot nfs mount the  
main gluster server from either a OSX or a CentOS 5 box. I use NFS  
often and have a fair amount of experience with it so i've reviewed  
most of the common pitfalls.

here's the command that fails from centos:
$ sudo mount -v -t nfs /mnt/gluster/
mount: trying prog 100003 vers 3 prot tcp port 2049
mount: trying prog 100005 vers 3 prot udp port 909
mount: failed, reason given by server: No such  
file or directory

and the same one from OSX 10.5
sudo mount -v -t nfs /gluster/
mount_nfs: can't access /gs-test: No such file or directory

what's weird is that i can mount actual dirs on the gluster server,  
just not the gluster VOLNMAE. in other words, this command works fine  
because it's mounting an actual dir.
$sudo mount -v -t nfs /mnt/gluster/
