SUMMARY: NFS mount fails with "RPC: Program not registered" under Solaris 2.3

My question dealt with the trouble I was having getting filesystems to mount
via NFS. Attempts to mount failed with "RPC: Program not registered".

The problem was that nfsd and mountd weren't running. If turns out that if
there are no shared entries in /etc/dfs/dfstab, then those daemons aren't
started at boot time. The solution I chose was to put the share command in
/etc/dfs/dfstab, and then execute

      /etc/init.d/nfs.server start

Also, I could have issued the commands manually:

                /usr/lib/nfs/nfsd -a 16

This must all be done as root, naturally.

Thanks to all those who responded.
