When trying to establish an NFS mount on my Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS machine (kernel 4.4.0-116-generic) I'm getting the following error in my /var/log/syslog file:

kernel: NFS: Server [my_server_address] reports our clientid is in use
kernel: NFS: state manager: lease expired failed on NFSv4 server [my_server_address] with error 1

While trying to debug the problem, two questions came to my mind:

  1. How is the NFS client id generated?
  2. Is it possible to display the NFS client id? If so, how?
