We recommend, but the system does not require, that /home be NFS mounted
on each slave.

It appears that the master, which the NFS server for /home/, is refusing
mount permission for slave 11.  There is nothing in the default
configuration that would cause this.  Look carefully at any changes you
have made to the configuration, such as limiting the IP address range
assigned to slave nodes.
