unknown nfs status return value: -1 11 December 2007

I’m trying to mount an NFS export from an AIX machine to a Linux client.

Had encountered the above problem.  Apparently the NFS exports on AIX requires the client’s hostname and IP address within the /etc/hosts file.

I had this problem on a Suse box. I added it to /etc/hosts, and it works.

I have about 20 RedHat (EL3, 4, &5) boxes, and the mount works fine *without* having to add them to /etc/hosts. Any explanation?
