NFS Mount Error: “unknown nfs status return value: -1”

Problem Statement
I received an error to mount a NFS mountpoint.

Server: AIX 6.1
Client: RHEL 5.7, kernel 2.6.18-274.17.1.el5
Error Message: unknown nfs status return value: -1

[root@kambing ~]# mount -t nfs 10.110.62.40:/usr/openv/NBU_Unified_Log/ /VRTS/
mount: 10.110.62.40:/usr/openv/NBU_Unified_Log/ failed, reason given by server: unknown nfs status return value: -1

Solution
Create an entry of the client in /etc/hosts. E.g

10.21.21.19    kambing

Alternatively, we probably might need to register the client in the DNS server.
