Fstab does not work in nfs


I am having problems automatically mounting 2 file systems on a remote server. The fstab file does not seem to mount them. I can not see anything wrong, can anyone else?

fstab is as follows:-

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# /dev/sda4 -- converted during upgrade to edgy
UUID=e2a1afd8-34a6-4b64-9fcc-88a8f517419f / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /dev/sda1 -- converted during upgrade to edgy
UUID=07D5-0B07 /media/sda1 vfat defaults,utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0 1
# /dev/sda2 -- converted during upgrade to edgy
UUID=9CBCC3C7BCC399E2 /media/sda2 ntfs defaults,nls=utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0 1
# /dev/sda3 -- converted during upgrade to edgy
UUID=02c09065-b2db-445a-9ac0-aef9a6fe73f9 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
#sshfs adrianr@geko4:/media/hdb1/home2/music /mnt/geko4-DATA01/home2/music fuse defaults 0 0
/proc/bus/usb/ /proc/bus/usb/ usbfs none 0 0
geko4:/home/documents/ /home/documents nfs rw,user,hard,intr 0 0
geko4:/music_safe/music_store /music_store nfs rw,user,hard,intr 0 0

The two bottom cmds are not mounting on my client

Thanks for any help

Try the host's IP instead of geko4.
Also, probably a silly question, have you configured NFS on that host?


fstab, nfs, share
