I've tried with a minimal options list (just -fstype=nfs,mountproto=tcp) but it doesn't help.

I've set up autofs on a separate server that has no gluster components installed and mounts the volume via nfs (exactly as I want my gluster nodes to do), and I'm happy to report it works perfectly. The only difference between the configs is the ip that the NFS mount points at (remote vs My suspicion is that the NFS client is seeing the address and thinking it can use a local bind instead of actually going over NFS, and is thus failing. How can I force the NFS client go via the network? Or do you think the problem is elsewhere?
