[Pvfs2-users] PVFS2 over infiniband: mount fails

Im trying to install PVFS2 on a cluster with Topspin IB. I have been
able to start the pvfs2-server and did some quick testing with MPICH2
and things seem ok. I would note here that during compilation of mpich2
I had to provide CFLAGS and LDFLAGS for lvapi and lmosal, to get the build.
Anyways all this is without the kernel module and pvfs2-client. Now when
I start with this part, Im able to load the pvfs2 kernel module and
start the pvfs2-client application. When I try to say:
"mount -t pvfs2 ib://hostname:3335/pvfs2-fs /mnt/pvfs2 "
it throws an error:
mount: Protocol not available
Just to make sure the pvfs2-server on this machine is up using IB, and
on the correct port number.
Any idea what might be going wrong here. I did a clean installation of
server and client with tcp and that worked fine.
