Thats to all the people who responded. Here is a list of things to check:

Check the network configuration (ifconfig -a; netstat -r). This was in
fact my problem, routing was not working from my machine to one of the
interfaces, adding a host route from one interface IP to the other fixed
the problem.

rpc.lockd communicates with the machine named in /etc/hostname.le0, so
ensure that the file exists and has the correct hostname in it.

Make sure statd and lockd are running (ps -aux | grep rpc). A good bet is
to kill them and then restart first statd and then lockd.

Read sm(5) and possibly delete /etc/sm and /etc/sm.bak.
