I went back through my orig post on this way back when and found a comment that I missed/forgot. This might have helped me... sorry herbert.

I also just found these....better late then never.

I'm currently mounting NFS from outside the vserver.

I also want to get NFS working inside a vserver.

I have progressed form 'permission denied' to "unknown filesystem type
'nfs'" by including those in ccapabilities. 'nfs' is listed as a
filesystem in /proc/filesystems, and the nfs module is loaded. strace
shows that the mount call fails with 'ENODEV (No such device)'. Needless
to say, it works if I use CAP_SYS_ADMIN instead.

What might the problem be?

My output is:
