NAS mount points not visible on system


Coming from non linux bod - but to create mount points on nas that are visible do we have to put entries in both fstab and rc.local?


- output from rc.local

Hello,

If you are trying to permanently mount filesystems that have already been exported on the NAS system, it is best, and simplest to put them into /etc/fstab. The options you specify in the fstab can be found on mount's man page, and any fileystem-specific mount manpage.

The startup scripts typically mount local filesystems in fstab first. After networking has started up, the fstab file is searched for any remote filesystems, and they are mounted at that time.
