Mounting NAS exported NFS share over tcp is not working .
When a nfs share is trying to mount without any option, i.e.
# mount servername:/share/point /local/mount/point
In case of RHEL 4, it attempts the mount on UDP (3 attempts), but fails over to TCP then completes the mount.
The same export and command when attempted from RHEL5, it fails after retry (5 attempts).
mount: mount to NFS server 'XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX' failed: timed out (retrying).
