NFS issue...

Hello everyone. I am having a little problem with my NFS being mounted on boot. I have a debian server with NFS configured, a slackware workstation, and a ubuntu workstation. Now I have had everything set up and working for almost 2 months, and for some reason my NFS share on the Ubuntu machine stopped mounting automatically on boot (slackware still works fine).

I have not changed any options, the IP addresses have not changed on the machines, and to be honest I'm not sure where to look. I am able to manually mount the drives with a simple 'sudo mount -a', so I am a little confused to why it stopped mounting automatically. Here is my /etc/fstab for the ubuntu machine:

SERVER:/share1 /mnt/share1 nfs rw,sync,hard,intr,nosuid 0 0
SERVER:/share2 /mnt/share2 nfs rw,sync,hard,intr,nosuid 0 0

Thanks for any help.

That is a little strange. Check and make sure the NFS modules are installed (sudo apt-get install nfs-common) and look in the logs for why it doesn't come up during boot.
Just a thought - does it run wirelessly? The network may not be up when it tries to mount the shares....
