NFS mount in /etc/fstab ?
I have a server running RH 8. This server has some backup sripts that copy some stuff out to an NFS share on a Unix machine. I have added the NFS mount point to /etc/fstab and it does not mount on startup. Anyone know why ?

If I do a mount -a it will mount
If I put mount -a in rc.local it will mount
All network service startup as usual, netfs is S25. DNS etc.. all works ok.

Any ideas ?

Can you give us or post what you put in your fstab file to mount the NFS? We don't know or can't guess what's wrong. Any error messages?

saptst01:/sci /mnt/sci nfs rw,soft,bg,intr 0 0

no error messages in startup. It just doesn't mount.
I assume the syntax works fine because a plain 'mount -a' will mount it.
