Again, the reference to the magic number 2 in fstab.
I looked it op in the man page for you:
The fifth field, (fs_freq), is used for these filesystems by the
dump(8) command to determine which filesystems need to be dumped. If
field is not present, a value of zero is returned and dump will
assume that the filesystem does not need to be dumped.
The sixth field, (fs_passno), is used by the fsck(8) program
to determine the order in which filesystem checks are done at reboot
time. The root
filesystem should be specified with a fs_passno of 1, and other
filesystems should have a fs_passno of 2. Filesystems within a
drive will be
checked sequentially, but filesystems on different drives will be
checked at the same time to utilize parallelism available in the
hardware. If the
sixth field is not present or zero, a value of zero is returned
and fsck will assume that the filesystem does not need to be checked.
I'm sorry to disappoint you, but you are just giving *wrong*
information. Fields 5 and 6 have nothing to do with automounting the
Perhaps I don't understand you and you mean something else?
