My problem is now fixed. Now, now, I know it was not the most brilliant
question one could ask but, hey! I didn't know so... :-)
I never managed a machine that did not start /etc/init.d/nfs.server
What happened is the machine is somewhat recent and I filled out the share
table (/etc/dfs/dfstab) after the last reboot. The the dfstab file is empty,
the machine does an init level 2 only, therefore not running
/etc/rc3.d/nfs.server. This script start mountd and nfsd that are needed to
share partitions (but not to mount).
I fixed that by running /etc/init.d/nfs.server manually. Since I have entries
in my /etc/dfs/dfstab file now, next time I reboot, the init should go into
level 3 automatically.
I know this now 'cause of the helfull tips of:
