I have the following in
/etc/fstab on FreeBSD:
venture:/usr/redacted /usr/local/redacted nfs rw 0 0
This fails during boot. However, after boot, the following command succeeds
mount -t nfs venture:/usr/redacted /usr/local/redacted
Two related questions:
1) last time I rebooted at the console (this machine is in a datacenter), I'm pretty sure I saw an explanatory message at boot time regarding the failure to mount. I think it had something to do with resolving the hostname. However, this message does not appear in
/var/log/messages with other boot-time messages; is there someplace else I should be looking?
2) Any thoughts about what could be preventing the hostname from resolving at boot time, but no problem 30 seconds later from the command prompt?
