I'm not that familiar with openfiler, so I'm not sure where to find the export 
options at the cmd line, but I have allowed both RAC nodes RW and allowed root 
as well. The share privileges are dba as the PG and oinstall has RW as well. 

Mount options on the Linux level are (copied straight from the install guide):

I also modified the oranfstab to look like this:
server: openfiler1
export: /mnt/danrac/of1/all1 mount: /mnt/all1
export: /mnt/danrac/of2/all2 mount: /mnt/all2

I restarted and there's no change--same error in the alert log and v$dnfs_files 
is empty. 

SQL> select svrname,dirname,mntport,nfsport,wtmax,rtmax from v$dnfs_servers

SVRNAME       DIRNAME                 MNTPORT    NFSPORT      WTMAX      RTMAX
------------- -------------------- ---------- ---------- ---------- ----------
openfiler1    /mnt/danrac/of1/all1        741       2049     131072     131072

I only have one datafile at the moment (on this mount point), so that's why 
only one of the mount points is showing up so far.

 what are your export options on the openfiler and what are your mount
options on the client?

I have an unsupported environment running:
CentOS 4.4 in VMWare Server 1.x (2 of these) RAC (production
release, not beta) OpenFiler 2.2 serving NFS (running in a 3rd VM)

So, many have done this and it is working just fine. I'm trying to play
with the Direct NFS features and I know a few of you have tried this as
