/etc/vfstab NFS Entries Not Mounting On Boot In Solaris 10 or Solaris 11
Last updated on JULY 09, 2018
Applies to:Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Using the documented procedure for Solaris to create an NFS file system that will mount at boot (that /etc/vfstab field is "yes") results in failure to even attempt to mount the configured NFS filesystem upon boot.
This doc deals with the fact that without the nfs/client service enabled, NFS mounts from /etc/vfstab won't even be attempted. Please see the doc references for other possible reasons an NFS mount attempt might fail.
Solaris 10 11/06 release introduced the "Secure by Default" profile. One of the services that was disabled by default was svc:/network/nfs/client:default.
