I have a NAS share for my Linux server which I mount using the following command.

mount -t nfs /eStore/

now to automate this I added the following line in /etc/fstab   /eStore         nfs     rw,addr=,auto       0 0

but it is not working and I am not getting any error also.

If I execute mount -a then mount is able to mount the NAS based on /etc/fstab configuration.

I would like it to mount at boot.

edit your /etc/fstab with this below line, you don't need to mention the address again. /eStore nfs auto,_netdev,noatime,nolock,bg,intr,tcp,actimeo=1800 0 0

You can mention the credentials username=User,password=Pass also

  • It's really the _netdev option that's the special sauce, here. That tells the kernel to wait to mount this filesystem until after the network has been enabled.
