Are you also using dhcp? dhcp and nfsv4 are not a good combination and 
will often cause problems on reboot. Also there was an nfs mount at boot 
bug I filed in Fedora that had to do with the change in the boot 
routines, but I haven't had that issue with Mageia.

Curious. That seems more likely to be a firewall issue, but I would 
expect that whatever default port it used instead of 4003 would be 
blocked also and you said the firewall status didn't make a difference. 
I don't have any current problems with nfs but I also have a highly 
customized way of setting up my network/boxes so you can't really go by me.

Best wishes, Jeff
