LOL! I forgot to check the console at boot. Been administering all the
machines remotely and you forget to do the most basic thing. *sigh*

Anyways, yes there was an error when starting mountd. It takes a few
seconds to start but then it failed giving mount[618] error saying it
can't resolve the first host in /etc/exports file.

I add the first host in /etc/hosts file and reboot but then mountd can't
resolve the second host in the list. So right now I use the machines IP
addresses in /etc/exports file and it works flawlessly.

Perhaps I need to set mountd to start later in the boot process so that
it can resolve the hostnames in /etc/exports file?

Thanks though. Really appreciate your tip!
