As I mentioned in an earlier message in this thread;

So, the test validating that files written to the mounted NFS share
appear in the exported file system would pass, but if you view the
output of 'herd status nfs' on a system configured before the fix you'd
see rpc.mountd reported as stopped and disabled (with something like 6
processes running :-)).
