Issue

When trying to mount a GlusterFS share on a Gluster Server over NFS, the following errors are returned and mounting failed:

[root@node1 ~]# mount -t nfs -o vers=3 localhost:/dht /mnt
mount.nfs: mounting localhost:/dht failed, reason given by server:
  No such file or directory

or, sometimes

[root@node1 ~]# mount -t nfs -o vers=3 localhost:/dht /mnt
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting localhost:/dht
