NFS newbie troubles
(1) Accessing Windows partition on the NFS server from client
NFS client can't access /mnt/windows dirs and files on the NFS server.
(2) NFS lock
Even after the client unmounts NFS mount point, we can't access files on
the server from THE server itself.
(3) NFS client don't access new hostname of the server
After changing the server host name by hostname command, the mount command
line on the client can't recognize the new host name. Only server's IP
address works on the command line:
mount -t nfs 192.168.11.3:/pub /nfs
I'd like to know the causes/reasons of above phenomenon and workarounds for
Thanks in advance.

1) Sounds like a permissions problem with either the /mnt/windows dir or how you're mounting it. Make sure you are mounting it so that all users can read it.
2) No clue here.
3) You have to have a local DNS server running for this to work (and it has to be updated with the hostnames. Otherwise, add the host in /etc/hosts as a line like:
192.168.11.3 fileserver"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
