Startup Item mounts NFS filesystems listed in /etc/fstab
Version: 0.2On most Unix-based operating systems, filesystems to be mounted at system startup are listed in the /etc/fstab file. The format of this file is described in the fstab(5) man page.
Operating System: Mac OS X
While Mac OS X supports /etc/fstab, the preferred method on Mac OS X for specifying filesystems to be mounted at startup is NefInfo.
Whilst Mac OS X will automatically mount all filesystems listed in NetInfo and UFS and HFS filesystems listed in /etc/fstab at startup, it will ignore the lines in /etc/fstab referring to NFS filesystems, not mounting them, despite the fact that the mount_nfs(8) man page states otherwise.
MountNFS is a little startup item that will restore the missing functionality. Once the MountNFS item is installed, NFS filesystems listed in /etc/fstab will be automatically mounted at system startup.
