Auto Mounting NFS Shares in /etc/fstab

To mount an NFS share using fstab (/etc/fstab) you need to know a few things, the hostname or IP address of the NFS server, the share name and where you intend to mount the share at. Next, add this line to the end of the /etc/fstab file:

[hostname_or_ip]:/[share_name]      /[your_mount_location]     nfs     rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr
10.0.0.50:/backup     /nfs/backup     nfs     rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr

When you are done, you can quickly refresh the fstab using the mount command
