Applies to:

Sun ZFS Storage 7320 - Version All Versions and later
Sun ZFS Storage 7120 - Version All Versions and later

Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-2 - Version All Versions and later
Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-BA - Version All Versions and later

Symptoms

The NFS client servers are not able to create any volumes on the guest vServers.  The program is failing with an error message: 'Unable to access file system at 192.xxx.xxx.xxx: rpc mount export: RPC: Timed out'.

On the nodes, "showmount -e x.x.x.x", works with the direct IP address of the active storage NAS head - but, it does not work with the 'floating' IP address of the storage 192.xxx.xxx.xxx

In the ZFS BUI, Configuration -> Network -> 192.xxx.xxx.xxx  is Green.
