I'm mounting my NAS/NFS share to /mnt/nas on my notebook/wlan connection. This did work until last week. Mounting the NFS share with two other wired PCs (same distro) still works.

In Debian / Arch Linux forums they suggested to add more x-systemd options to the fstab

  • noauto
  • x-systemd.automount
  • x-systemd.requires=network-online.target
  • x-systemd.device-timeout=10

My current fstab looks like this /mnt/nas nfs  nfsvers=3,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,noauto,x-systemd.automount,x-systemd.requires=network-online.target,x-systemd.device-timeout=60             0 0

I've tried the following options in fstab x-systemd.requires= network-online.target or systemd-networkd-wait-online.service or nfs-client.target none of them worked.

journalctl error: mount[841]: mount.nfs: Network is unreachable

When I run a sudo mount /mnt/nas manually after boot, it mounts the share.

How can I have my NFS share mounted automatically after boot?

If you read this, you might probably have the same problem I had.

My hint was comming from journalctl | grep nas

systemd[1]: mnt-nas.automount: Got automount request for /mnt/nas, triggered by 746 (zeitgeist-datah)

I simply uninstalled the zeitgeist package - not sure why it was installed, and mounting works again
