NFS oddity between Redhat 7.2 and 7.3

Greetings All,

Sorry for having to bother you all again, I'll try to be concise.

I am unsuccessfully trying to configure NFS for 2 Linux boxes. Redhat72
works perfectly when amd (for /net/server mounts) is used in conjunction
with autofs (for /user/username mounts), but I can't seem to get everything
to work correctly with only autofs (desire).

One of them (ref Redhat72) is a Dell 2550 running Redhat 7.2 with autofs
3.1.7-21, nfs-utils 0.3.1-13 and am-utils 6.0.6-3 

One of them (ref Redhat73) is a Dell 4600 running Redhat 7.3 with autofs
3.1.7-28 and nfs-utils 0.3.3-5.

-- ================ --
   Redhat72 config:
-- ================ --

sda:
RAID 5, 1 container, 2 logical volumes, / and /raid

exports:
/	*.domain.com(rw,sync,no_root_squash)
/raid	*.domain.com(rw,sync,no_root_squash)

amd.conf:
...
[ /net ]
map_name =		amd.net
map_type = 		file

amd.net:
/defaults fs:=${autodir}/${rhost}/root/${rfs};opts:=nosuid,nodev
*       rhost:=${key};type:=host;rfs:=/

auto.master:
/user	/etc/auto.user	--timeout=60

auto.net does not exist

   Redhat83 config:
-- ================ --

sda:
RAID 5, 1 container, 2 logical volumes, / and /raid

exports:
/	*.domain.com(rw,sync,no_root_squash)
/raid	*.domain.com(rw,sync,no_root_squash)

amd.conf does not exist
amd.net does not exist

auto.master:
/net	/etc/auto.net	--timeout=60

auto.net
# some comment stuff followed by a blank line (literal)

*  -fstype=nfs,soft,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,nosuid  Redhat72.domain.com:/
*  -fstype=nfs,soft,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,nosuid
Redhat72.domain.com:/raid
*  -fstype=nfs,soft,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,nosuid  Redhat73.domain.com:/
*  -fstype=nfs,soft,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,nosuid
Redhat73.domain.com:/raid

-- ================ --

On the Redhat72 servers I can list contents of all four exported volumes and
list the contents:
ls -la /net/Redhat72		(automounts itself, this works)
ls -la /net/Redhat72/raid	(automounts itself, this works)
ls -la /net/Redhat73		(this works)
ls -la /net/Redhat73/raid	(this works)

-- ================ --
