I can see the home directory of all users, but i dont have it exported 
with no_root_squas parameter because we dont need it before, and this 
home area is served by some NetApp fillers to the users.

We have here other clusters with a much larger nodes and we never had 
this problem. The other cluster are Xeon and the OS is the old RedHat. 
This problem only happen with this Opteron/RHEL WS cluster.

Thanks for your help,
