Yeah, do not like the idea of no file locking.
As it turns out, I found the problem - the server was rebooted last week 
to get the latest kernel functioning and for some reason nlockmgr came 
up on the wrong port, thus the firewall did not allow the client to lock 
the file...... etc. Checked /etc/sysconfig/nfs and found the issue.
Thanks to those that helped and made suggestions.
Kind regards
