I know nothing of SL but there may be separate repositories for each
release that you could use. Otherwise I don't know. The way that RHEL
operates is that each dot release contains package updates as well as
potential security updates so staying at a specific release carries risk
which increases over time.
The thing about NFS is there are a lot of moving parts including NFS
itself, gssproxy, potentially autofs, rpcbind, etc. You should be able
to add a whole slew of -vvvv to get additional debug information out of
the various daemons that may point you in the right direction.
