How to check how NFS share is being mounted

Post by 16bm0nster » 2015/10/16 14:42:46

Hi guys,
I have got two CentOS boxes running some CAD software(6.5 and 5.10)
They are mounting some NFS shares from 2 servers.
We want to get rid off those NFS server and replace them with Windows NFS share instead.
It is quite a legacy setup and guy who was setting this up is long gone.
I need to find how those shares are being mounted on startup
I have checked all the usual places like fstab and autofs config file and there is nothing there
Any ideas?

grep -ri sharename /etc may yield some clues (replace sharename with some appropriate text from the output of the mount command).

Or just check for a known file on the mounted system.....

Another place to check is /etc/rc.local.

It turned out that this whole setup was using NIS to distribute NFS shares.
