automounting file systems on HP-UX

Hi folks,

How do I create automounts? Is it just the /etc/fstab file that needs to be updated, or is there more to it?

linuxserver – all the source file systems are on this box
(all have been exported)

hpserver – where I need to implement NFS mounts for the source file systems on linuxserver
(all mount points have been created on hpserver)

I need to mount on hpserver the filesystem /rmfmnt/BWS/profile that resides on linuxserver.

Thanks in advance!

> mount on hpserver the filesystem /rmfmnt/BWS/profile that resides on linuxserver.
For manual mount:
1. export out filesystem on linux server (as root)
# echo "/rmfmnt/BWS/profile  *(rw)"  >> /etc/exports
# exportfs -a
# service nfs restart    <=== make sure nfs server is running in linux server

2. create mount point on HP-UX (as root)
# mkdir -p /nfs-mount/BWS/profile

3. test mount on HP-UX
# mount <linux hostname or IP>:/rmfmnt/BWS/profile  /nfs-mount/BWS/profile

if everything ok, then on HP-UX
# echo "<linux hostname>:/rmfmnt/BWS/profile   /nfs-mount/BWS/profile  nfs  rw  0 0" >> /etc/fstab
