FC8: Booting off NFS root file system fails at Remounting (takes a long time)

I've been running into a few problems after attempting to load the FC8 onto a client from another FC8 server. Both the kernel and file system are loaded/mounted from the server. This seems to be working, but there are error messages in the boot up sequence when the kernel tries to remount the root file system to read+write. It takes a long time then fails.

Here is the error I am seeing:

*** beg error mesg ***

Remounting root filesystem in read-write mode: failed
mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking. Either use "-o nolocks" to keep locks local, or start statd.

*** end error mesg ***

At the end of the boot process I am able to access/read/write to the NFS file system, but the boot process pauses at the error message for a long time.


Fedora Core 8
2.6.24 kernel

Does anybody know of a fix to this problem?

Thank you very much.

Have you tried following the directions ?
If the server is Fedora start the nfslock service there and make sure the port are open.

nfslock is running on the server and the ports are open. I see rpc.statd when I do 'lsof -i'. Could my problem be related to a bug in the rc.sysinit script on the client side?
