NFS Issues


I have a NSF issues. I have a Server A that I export a file system /db_backup to server B & C. On Server B & C I have the nfs partition mounted but if Server A goes down and when it come back online then Server B & C do not remount the nfs partition. What do I need to do to make sure it is automatic remounted:

Here's the entry in the /etc/fstab on Server B & C:

db2:/db_backup /db_backup nfs defaults 1 2

I think your problem will be solved with the autofs service...!!. Autofs is a service implemented in the client side, which automatically mounts a filesystem from a remote system (you can also do that locally too..) and automatically unmounts the filesystem if it is not being used for more than a specific time.....you will have lot of tutorials available on the net.
Thank u.
