Matt - 
I talked to engineering, is it possible another NFS service is running on the servers? Can you send us a ps -ef?

Subject: [Gluster-users] cannot nfs mount glusterFS 

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/
