I am running OEL5. I mounted a mountpoint /NTFS as nfs mountpoint. After every 15 minutes, the mountpoint goes dead & I cant go in that directory.
The entry for /NTFS in fstab is as follow
nas:/NTFS /NTFS nfs rw,bg,hard,nointr,tcp,vers=3,timeo=300,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,actimeo=0 0 0
where nas is the server where /NTFS is located

The hangover of mountpoint occur in 2 steps:

1. cd /NTFS
bash: cd: /NTFS: Stale NFS file handle
Message in var/log/messages for this command
Cannot export /NTFS, possible unsupported filesystem or fsid= required

2. cd /NTFS
The Process Hang there forever
Message in /var/log/messages for this command
nfs:server nas not responding, still trying

If I restart nfs service it hang out till the following step

-bash-3.2# service nfs restart
Shutting down NFS mountd: [ OK ]
Shutting down NFS daemon: [ OK ]
Shutting down NFS quotas: [ OK ]

Please someone guide me in the direction of solution to this problem.

Thanks in advance.

Probably because of permission on server side that share space.
