like something to avoid, but maybe I need to try it anyway.  How
reliable has it been?  Do the clients reconnect most times?

In your case, NFS over TCP is likely to have been the major cause of your problems. UDP can fail over much more transparently, because there is no state to it to expire.

You could also try tweaking your timeout, retry, and hard vs. soft failure modes on NFS.
