    I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 server and i can't get my nas drive to mount at reboot. I created a credentials file with the login and password and i added this line in /etc/fstab.
    //NAS-NASNAME/vm /mnt/NAS/media cifs uid=1000,rw,noperm,noserverino,nogroup,rw,credentials=/root/credentials/NAS/media,iocharset=utf8 0 0
    Ok i really don't know what everything does but it worked on my old server.
    But after reboot i can mount my drive with "mount /mnt/NAS/media" with no problem.
    Any idea why it doesn't work?

    Most likely the network is not up at the time the nas gets mounted. Try to add the _netboot option to the mount options. If this does not work, then add a command to mount the NAS in /etc/rc.local instead of configuring it in fstab as rc.local gets executed at the end of the boot process when the network is available.

    Thanks Till! I hade to leave the options without _netboot in /etc/fstab and added mount /mnt/NAS/media to /etc/rc.local and now it mounts!
