Unable To Update /etc/fstab To Add In External SAN Location For Backup (Doc ID 2264010.1)

Goal

Instructions needed on how to permanently update /etc/fstab. We need to add in location for backup.

Note:

This is at the top of the /etc/fstab file.

# DBFW generated fstab - DO NOT MODIFY.

 

 I have configured the AV backup to write to an external SAN location. I have updated the /etc/fstab file with the following:

10.1.1.80:/Store4/orabak /orabak nfs rw,bg,hard,intr,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,tcp,noac,nolock,nfsvers=3,timeo=600

Then The backup is working ok. The only issue is that when the appliance is rebooted the /etc/fstab file gets refreshed, wiping out the mount information that I have included.

 

How to make the changes in /etc/fstab to be permanent?
