NFS problem: RPC Error: Program not registered

I have prepared the /etc/exports, executed exportfs -ua; exportfs -a at the server side (a RHLS). The fstab file is setup at the client side. There is no problem in the content of these files (they are verified at other server/client pairs). But when I invoke mount -a in the client side I get the following error:

RPC Error: Program not registered

This error message is rather misleading, someone is the net argue that it is caused by the network mask setting in the /etc/exports, while there are a dozen of other causes found by google. The real cause of my case is that nfs is not started in RHLS. Everything went fine after I have invoked "/etc/init.d/nfs restart"
