I want to mount/umount a directory on an nfs directory without root privileges or any password request. I modified /etc/fstab in this way:

<IP address>:/mydir     /mnt    nfs     rw,user,noauto          0 0

mount /mnt/ works without asking me for the password. However:

$> umount /mnt/

Shows the following error message:

umount.nfs: /mnt: not found
umount.nfs: /mnt: not found

sudo umount /mnt/ does the job correctly, but asks for the password.

Any hint?

    Not exactly. Please note that I don't want to mount anything without sudo: just the directory mydir in nfs. – Paolo May 7 '18 at 12:52
