WARNING: NFS: 898: RPC error 13 (RPC was aborted due to timeout)

I am trying to mount NFS datastore on vSphare 4.0 from my netapp sim 7.3 version and I am getting following error message while mounting under vmkernel

Can anyone provide me help what I might be doing wrong?

Re: WARNING: NFS: 898: RPC error 13 (RPC was aborted due to timeout)

You can try turning on the option nfs.mountd.trace and watch the console as you try to mount it and see if anything shows up.

This might give you a clue.

I have solved it and update here all the detail

In nutshell : vmkernel IP should be in subnet thats of NFS server.

Thanks,
