There are usually two separate services. "nfs" or similar is usually the server part. It allows you to export directories in the current machine so they can be mounted remotelly on other machines. But that doesn't manage the mount part. It makes sense because on the client machines you don't want to run nfs at all. All you want to do is to mount a share from other remote machine (the one that is -indeed- running the nfs server).

I have no idea how the "nfsmount" service is called in fedora. It might be a separate package, or maybe it doesn't exist at all and there's some other way to do this in a more fedora-ish fashion. I can't help on that concrete part.

Thanks for your explanation and help. I finally decide add the below line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local so it activate the command every time the system boot up.
Code:
/sbin/mount server-B:/test /test
It works perfectly for me. However, I learn the different way from you guys help and explanation the different nfs and samba. Thanks for your help guys.

Try the autofs service on the client. See also

man automount
