Sharing a mounted network share through NFS
I have a Virtual FOG machine, instead of having a huge virtual hdd i decided to store the images on the host machine. I use Virtual Box and i shared a host folder through it. I mounted it to /images and it worked brilliantly i could create files etc... in the folder and they appeared on the host.
I booted up a machine to upload to this new fog machine and it fails saying it cant mount the nfs share. i umounted the share and tried to mount the nfs share again, works fine so its not an authentication/service problem with nfs its a problem with nfs and the share.
when i try mounting it from terminal i get:
the directory permissions are the same and i cant see any problems with it.
[root@fog mnt]# mount -t nfs FOG_IP:/images /mnt/nfs/
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting FOG_IP:/images
Anyone know how to get nfs to share a share?

I haven't used FOG, but when I've set up NFS servers in the past I have had similar issues. These have always been down to me either forgetting about the firewall or forgetting to start the NFS service.
Try disabling the firewall on the server and see if that fixes it.

Firewall is off, SELinux is off (have to disable it all anyway to get fog to work).
the NFS shares work fine till you mount the HDD
