Mount NFS volume in RHEL 6.4 permanently

Hi,

I am trying to mount a volume on a RHEL 6.4 virtual machine permanently.

My fstab entry is as: 172.17.4.228:/bp_nfs_test1       /mnt1   nfs   rsize=8192,wsize=8192,intr

And I mounted the volume as: mount 172.17.4.228:/bp_nfs_test1       /mnt1

When I run df -h I can see the volume and able to access it properly.

But when I reboot the VM, the mount is gone and not able to access it anymore even though the entry in /etc/fstab is present

I have to manually mount the volume again (mount -a), then only I am able to see my volume in df -h and access it.

Any help is appreciated

hmm... try adding the "_netdev" option in the fstab entry.
