NFS mount won't mount at boot, but mount -a works fine.

    I'm trying to get an NFS share to mount at boot time, but it won't. However,
    mount -a works just fine. I've tried playing with the retry= option with no
    luck. nsswitch.conf is hosts: files dns, and I have an entry for the host in
    /etc/hosts. The client machine is SUSE 8 (2.4 kernel), the server is SUSE 9
    (2.6 kernel). My fstab entry looks like this:

    storage01:/array/ /home/array nfs rw,auto,sync

    Does anyone have any ideas on this?

    Thanks,
    Brian

  2. chkconfig nfs on.

    Thanks a lot, that worked. I wasn't familiar with that one.

    Thanks,
