Sco Unix - Auto mount NFS filesystem on boot?

Posted on 2008-11-19

Mornming all,

I'm runing Sco Openserver 6 and would liek to have an NFS filesystem automatically mounted when the system boots.

I can manually mount the filesystem once the system is up without issue, but I'd like it to be automatic.

I take it I can add the relevant mount command into one of the /etc/rc2.d files, but which one? Is that the correct place?

    create /etc/rc2.d/S99nfsmount   - put your mount command in it.  That will have the mount run near the end of the boot.

    You could also use scoadmin to get to filesystem manager and add a mount point and tell it to mount at boot.  I think it may add that to the /etc/mnttab or some other file.

    Thanks very much. I haven't been able to reboot this server again to check this has worked, but I have no reason to believe it will not.
