My cluster I've been working on just starting acting up out of no where... It looks like I'm having an issue with the exportfs resource.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this? I can find nothing for a "-2" return code

The ubuntu server package had outdated resource agents. There was a bug in the exportfs resource agent that caused the nfs rmtab to grow to an immense size (which is why the time outs were occurring).

I upgraded the resource agents from github and removed the 2GB rmtab. Everything was fine after that.
