I am working from RHCE Study Guide 5th Edition by Michael Jang. Lab 1 for Chapter 6 says that I should be able to mount a remote NFS share as an ordinary user under their home directory. However, mount requires root unless it's defined in /etc/fstab with the appropriate options. So would the following never work for a user?
mount -t nfs 192.168.1.2:/inst /home/testuser1/inst
I could define it in /etc/fstab, but then I would have to specify a "general" mount point for the mount, like /mnt/nfs and not specific to a user like the lab suggests above.
Is the book wrong on this? Even the answer for the lab makes no mention of using fstab to mount as non-root user and the above command is correct according to the solution.
Has anyone used the book and done this lab successfully? - it seems pretty misleading.
