I did not try to get kernel nfs up/running on a vserver,
I simply repeated what was posted on the mailing list ...

the kernel NFS server do not work (yet) in a vserver. The only solution for now
is to use the userland NFS server. Conectiva (for one) distributes a rpm.


but you should take a closer look on the log files,
and if possible make a packet log with tcpdump, former
will show rpb.mountd/rpc.nfsd issues, latter will
show ip/network issues, which can easily arise on
vservers and network aliases ...

if you provide both loggings, I am sure I can at least
tell you what works and what not ...
