NFS Automount / Autofs Timeout

Recently, we had an issue where on one machine, a single NFS mountpoint was not mountable (in our case via automount/autofs). Other mountpoints from the same server worked and the same mountpoint worked on other servers. So a very mysterious issue indeed. It turned out that this was caused by a server problem, i.e., the one providing the NFS mountpoint, related to portmap. We found a solution here:

/etc/init.d/nfsserver stop # might also be called nfs-kernel-server
/etc/init.d/portmap stop
/etc/init.d/nfsserver start
/etc/init.d/portmap start
