Solaris uses /etc/dfs/dfstab file and not /etc/exports to perform nfs mounts. So I created
the entry in the /etc/dfs/dfstab file and started the nfs.server. I was able to mount.

Thanks for the help.

Hi: I am trying to mount CDROM on a solaris 2.6 to a remote machine. This
is what I did

On the local machine (nms2) added the following entry into /etc/exports
/cdrom -ro, root=nms1

and ran the command
/usr/sbin/exportfs -a

On the remote machine
mkdir /cdrom1
mount nms2:/cdrom /cdrom1

I get the following error
nfs mount: nms2: : RPC:Program not registered
nfs mount:retrying: /cdrom1
and just hangs there

Could somebody help me on this.
