Hello, obviously I am new at this, and I have set up a machine running Debian as a media server in my house (frees up the PCs for the kids to mess up). The media collection is located on a NAS. I mount the network drives via fstab, and a reboot will remount the drives, so cool.
But here is the problem; the rare power outage brings down the Debian box and the NAS, but the Debian box boots faster, doesn’t find the NAS, and therefore doesn’t map the drives. A reboot will remount the drives, so everything works still.
I guess I can write a script to check for the NAS, and if not there wait and then check again, but there must me a simpler solution to this (besides buying a battery backup!).
