When I NFS-mount a filesystem from a Snap Server on my LAN and try and access the files it always gives me the Stale NFS File Handle error.

I can NFS-mount and access other file systems from other devices, Macs, Solaris, etc. OK.

The other computers can access the Snap Server's file system OK.

I have tried hard and soft and bg and other options but nothing seems to work. I tried umount,mount,access in one line but that didn't work so I guess it's not a time-out issue.

"cp: reading `/mountpoint/Archive.txt': Stale NFS file handle"
