Mounting NFS File Systems using /etc/fstab

You must be root to modify the /etc/fstab file.

General Syntax of mount point in fstab:
<server>:</remote/export>  </local/directory>  <nfs-type>  <options> 0 0

<server> = hostname, IP address, or fully qualified domain name of the server.
</remote/export> = the path to the exported directory.
</local/directory> = the local file system.
<nfs-type> = nfs for NFSv2 or NFSv3 servers, or nfs4 for NFSv4    servers.

nfs-server:/usr/local/pub             /pub                           nfs                          rw     0  0

The mount point /pub must exist on the client machine before this command can be executed. After adding this line to /etc/fstab on the client system, type the command mount /pub at a shell prompt, and the mount point /pub is mounted from the server.

The /etc/fstab file is referenced by the netfs service at boot time, so lines referencing NFS shares have the same effect as manually typing the mount command during the boot process.
