Strange NFS Problem


Dear all,
in one of our SLES 10 NFS Client there is this statement in its
/etc/fstab:

NFS-Server:/tools /tools nfs hard,bg,intr,noatime 0 0

In a case where a reboot of the NFS Server and this client is necessary
- due to some reasons we have to boot the client first and then it's
NFS Server - we would expect that the client's NFS request is trying
in the background to get the NFS /tools system as long as the NFS server
is up and running.
But that's not the case: We have to do a #mount -a on the client site to get
/tools.
Why?

THX in advance for any help!
Rainer

No idea. Anything in the system logs?

I dont remember how to act nfs v3, but there is some time during nfs client is trying mount, its different in UDP and TCP. You can try automount program and/or nfs v4. For me it works, even starting server later, but in turn I have to wait some time when client is shutdown after server.
