Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

what does auto.master have to do with his question?
Can't think of any obvious reason, but you've two steps on one there... 1) using an fstab entry and 2) mounting on boot. So with that entry does "mount /bmc" work? after that there can often be issues with the network not being ready yet, but that's why network based filesystems are typically not mounted until later in the boot process on most systems.
(maybe the server has taste... If I ever have to use another BMC product again, so help me... )
Thank you Chris.
We can mount the NAS share OK with this command:
mount -t nfs NASent.my-company.com:/root_vdm_5/FScs01/FScs01 /bmc
Still it will not be available after a server reboot even though we have this line in the /etc/fstab:
NASent.my-company.com:/root_vdm_5/FScs01/FScs01 /bmc nfs defaults 0 0
Sorry for being verbose. Our question is: how do we retain the mount after reboot?
If I understood you correctly it might be a timing issue (and fully justified BMC idiosyncrasies)?
