NFS FSTAB mount not working

I have been trying to get an NFS mount with FSTAB working (following the wiki) and I’m not having any luck.
The share I am trying to mount is on my linux server (192.168.1.200) and is called /media/USB_MoviesA/Movies.
I am trying to mount it to /mnt/Server_MoviesA.

This is the line in my FSTAB:
192.168.1.200:/media/USB_MoviesA/Movies /mnt/Server_MoviesA nfs noauto,x-systemd.automount 0 0

I sudo mount -a and try to browse the directory but it is empty. There are no error messages when I make the mount -a command.
No idea what I am doing wrong!

Did you reload systemd…

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl restart remote-fs.target

or reboot before trying to access the mount?

The fstab line looks ok. You didn’t mention whether your Vero has permission to access the NFS share. Run

showmount -e 192.168.1.200

to see which IP addresses can access its shares.

Rather than running sudo mount -a, I’d recommend that you try sudo mount /mnt/Server_MoviesA. For further debugging info, run sudo mount -v /mnt/Server_MoviesA

It looks like you’ve already created it, but the mount point should exist.

@darwindesign had the answer.
I can’t believe you actually expect people to read and follow the clear, concise instructions you’ve provided :slight_smile:

In the time of “apps” - it is much to expect. Yes!
