I am using RHEL 6.5

I just put a new entry into fstab

What command can I use to re-ipl the fstab, as opposed to rebooting to get the changes made to be effective ?

Thanks

mount -a

parses fstab and mounts everything set to automatic mount which is not already mounted.

... if you made changes (as opposed to additions) you must umount/mount the FS in question.

If this is not possible during system uptime there is no alternative to rebooting.
