Hi,

I am new to linux, we are running fedora 13 . we have different mount points in fedora.
/home
/apps

all these mount points are mapped to our storage server.

/etc/fstab is where the mount devices and their mount points are defined.
It is possible that it is also defined within /etc/auto.master or /etc/auto_home /etc/auto.net

etc.

Hi,
Thanks for reply.

do we put manual entries into fstab or do they get from cfengine ? sorry i'm new to linux.
for example if we have 30 linux fedora boxes in our company. do we have to do manual entries into fstab in all these fedora or we'll do it centrally somewhere ?

thanks

we have more than 30 clients running fedora. i think they are centrally managed. which file in cfengine updates these chnages in fstab ?
I do not use cfengine so not sure. What options are you looking to add to fstab?
Are you looking to an an NFS mount?
Take a look on one of the worksations to see where the entry is i.e. is it distributed through auto/nis/ldap or is it in /etc/fstab.

Thanks arnold
It is in etc/fstab

But what I want to find out is that for example if
I want to mount another network drive on all thesr 30 machines then
Which place would I do this change that it will effect on /etc/fstab on all 30 computers. ?

We have something called kickstart as well
kikstart is for deploying/installing the OS.

Are your systems cenrtally managed dealing with users i.e. OpenLDAP?

I do not know what or how cfengine works or whether you have options within that you can see the. Navigate through the options.
