Remote NFS export (via fstab) isn't mounted at boot


I have an entry in my fstab to mount an NFS export at boot. For some reason, it never does. However, after the OS is up, I can do 'mount -a' and it mounts correctly.

The question is, why won't it load at boot?

Here's my fstab line:
10.0.0.12:/data /media/net/fs2/data nfs defaults 0 0

Any thoughts or ideas?

What type of connection are you on? Is it possible somehow your NFS mount is coming before you even have a network connection? What do your logs tell you? Do you see any errors on the console during bootup?

The NFS export is on the same subnet, which is all connected via gigabit. The network connection is solid in terms of stability.

dmesg doesn't report anything at all about NFS... and neither does /var/log/messages. Is there another log I should be checking?

I have two NFS scripts in my rc.d folder, nfs and nfsboot. Both are set to start on runlevels 3 and 5 (5 being the default). Both start at 10 (S10 in rc3.d & rc5.d). Networking functions load at S05 in both runlevels.

Any suggestions?

It won't show up with dmesg output. Do you see anything related during bootup? If it's truly failing at startup, it should report it to /var/log/messages, what's your current logging level and what about /var/log/syslog
