Automount Problem

i have two RHEL 5 station and i am trying to mount 4 folders of 1 machine onto the other machine. it was working fine when we were having the network range 192.168.x.xxx. On monday we have changed our network range to 10.102.x.xxx and the problem started. this is very strange problem, out of 4 folders, 2 folders are automounting and for other 2 it is prompting "there is no route to the system". below is the snapshot of my /etc/fstab

# User specfic folders /user/folder1 nfs auto,rw 0 0 /user/folder2 nfs auto,rw 0 0 /user/folder3 nfs auto,rw 0 0 /user/folder4 nfs auto,rw 0 0

folder3 and folder4 are getting mounted automatically. but folder1 and folder2 are not mounting. while booting it shows the mesg "there is no route to the system".

for further testing i simply moved folder3 and folder4 entry before folder1 and folder2 as below

# User specfic folders /user/folder3 nfs auto,rw 0 0 /user/folder4 nfs auto,rw 0 0 /user/folder1 nfs auto,rw 0 0 /user/folder2 nfs auto,rw 0 0

now folder1 and folder2 are automatically mounting and folder3 & 4 does NOT!

in simple words first folders are NOT mounting and 3 & 4th are mounting. interestingly if i just cut paste it on command mode, it works fine! only problem with automounting

any idea why it s working this way? to the best of my knowledge the only change was in the network range. any ideas to overcome this problem?
