Quick notes regarding nfs mounting from an OpenSolaris VBox guest.
I came up against an issue mounting via nfs from a Linux host to an OpenSolaris virtualbox guest (see this post for automounting nfs on OpenSolaris). Checking the host's logs revealed the issue: mountd: [...] refused mount request [..] illegal port.
This is seemingly caused due to the natted connection between guest and host. Adding (insecure) in the host's /etc/exports line for this export enabled the guest to successfully mount the nfs share.

A few notes on automounting from Linux server to OpenSolaris clients.
Recently setting up a few Opensolaris NFS clients served from Linux exports, I encountered an error:
Jul 24 13:02:53 osolmobil.swatteksystems.com nfs: [ID 435675 kern.warning] WARNING: NFS server initial call to 192.168.0.64 failed: Not owner
To fix this, I added entries on the NFS clients like so within /etc/auto_master (unchanged) & /etc/auto_direct files:
/data -onosuid,vers=3 192.168.0.64:/data
