Fstab failing

Asked by Anthony Bodin on 2012-12-18

In the FSTAB file, only the 2 first NFS folders are mounted.

With the FSTAB file I have below, following folders are listed : data, video, music, photo.
Only data & video are mounted during boot. Music and photo are not mounted automaticallly (but the manual mounting works properly).

I did try to change the order, for instance : music, photo, data, video.
Then only music & photo are mounted during boot. And I need to mount manually data & video.

Is there limitations on the number of NFS to be mounted during boot ?

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

Have you checked that the ownership and permissions on the exported music and photo directories are the same as those of data and video? I have had that cause failures for me in the past.

Anthony Bodin (anthony-bodin) said : #2

Yes I did check that : the 4 folders have the same permissions and ownerships.
And actually, the mounting does work when I put music & photo first in fstab. As said, only the 2 first directories are mounted...


gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local

above the 'exit 0' line, add:

mount /home/syno/Music &
mount /home/syno/Photo &
mount /home/syno/Video &
mount /home/syno/Data &

Save the new file, close gedit and reboot

Do you really have the typo error "mouser" instead of "nouser" in the last two lines of your fstab?

I'm afraid I did the typo mistake. I can't believe I have not seen it before!
Thanks a lot !
