NFS Mount Issue

I recently had a number of AIX server backups miss due to the backup hanging when doing its initial filesystem listing. At some point within the last day the mount's source was rebooted and all the mount points went bad. The problem is that TSM sits there trying to query it even though the default action is to not backup NFS mount points. So I had to log into each server, umount -f the file system, remount it, and then TSM was able to run successfully. TSM does not allow a DOMAIN -ALL-NFS so no matter what I do TSM is going to hang on the listing of file systems. Of course doing a df on the server hangs also, so it's not just a TSM issue. Anyone else ran across this issue?
