This morning I attempted to configure an NFS share from a fresh Cent OS 5.2 machine to my desktop. I started by configuring NFS as I had for years. My /etc/exports config contained:
I started NFS, then tried to mount the share from my desktop, but got an access denied error.
# mount -t nfs 192.168.1.2:/Storage_A /mnt/coral/A
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting 192.168.1.2:/Storage_A
Interesting, I had never had a problem with this config before. The logs confirmed the issue.

A quick reread of docs later and we had a solution. The network mask should be included each time… Sloppiness on my part.
A quick change to /etc/exports:
Restart NFS and the mount works beautifully.
