The problem is that mount isn't the one evaluating the title - it is mount.nfs. Mount -a just passes the strings to mount.nfs, which in turn has to pass it to a remote system.
For testing purposes you can try "mount.nfs" and quoting the desired strings. This will isolate the problem to the handoff between the mount command and the mount.nfs, or between mount.nfs and server.
What distributions/versions are the client and server?
I kind of caved and updated my remote share to to eliminate special characters which I REALLY didn't want to do...
It was just too much trouble, I still would like to get to the bottom of this though
Here is what half-worked:
If in fstab I added "/" at the end of the
192.168.1.173:/mnt/user/Documentaries\040\050TV\051/ /mnt/Documentaries_TV nfs noatime,vers=3,auto,rw,dev,exec,suid,rsize=32768,wsize=32768 0 0
Upon restarting of the system fstab mounts every other mount except the one above.
If I issue mount -a when I login it mounts fine! What gives!?!?
Now to answer your questions:
Server is Unraid OS 6.1.6 (Which is slackware based I believe)
Client is Ubuntu Server Ubuntu Server LTS 14.04.03
Do you still want me to try mount.nfs or does above stuff give you enough idea?
