Specify NFS Mount Timeout


Hello,

I'm executing a script that mounts NFS using "mount -o nolock -t nfs" but if the remote server is not present or there is no network connection, the mount waits for about 5 minutes before it times out.

I was wondering if there is a way to specify the timeout value of the mount command, say if unable to mount NFS within 10 seconds, just stop? I tried using the "retry", "timeo" "soft" without any difference.

Thanks!

Hi

just follow this steps

Devicename : Mountpoint : Filesystem :rw,hard,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=10 : 0 : 0

For example

example.com 192.168.1.0:/nfs nfs rw,hard,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=10 0 0

Regards
Bala

Thank you very much for the reply. I was wondering if this is possible within the mount command? The code is executed in ramdisk during startup.

I attempted:

mount -o nolock,hard,timeo=10 -t nfs 192.168.1.0:/nfs /mnt/nfs

Thank you once again!
