nfs won't mount

I am setting up a new PC for my wife (using solydxee_9_32_201512.iso), on our home network I have synology nas. On my PC I mount the nas via the fstab file during bootup, here the line from my fstab (I am also running SolydX EE but 64bit version) /mnt/nfs nfs users,rw,auto 0 0

It works perfectly for me

But on the wife PC I get a mount error

karen@telstar ~ $ sudo mount -a
mount.nfs: an incorrect mount option was specified

Here is the line from her fstab /mnt/nas nfs,auto 0 3

The only difference being is the actual mount point on her PC which I called nas, I have nfs client and server installed on the wifes PC. I am using the same username and passowrd on her new PC as she use's on her old PC (which mounts the nas in exactly the same way)

Any suggestions??

Don't use a 3 at the end of the fstab line? I didn't check, but I've only ever seen 0, 1 and 2 used there.

Also make sure there's a comma between users and rw.

Yep you spotted it Grizzler, it was a dot rather than the required comma, I spent over and hour looking at it going over and over, "cant see the wood for the trees me" I also changed the 3 to a 2.

Just the data transfer to go now and then try and squeeze a very big box (old Dell XPS gaming PC) into a very small space under her desk :shock:
