Nfs mac os x el capitan

When does the user-created mount directory get deleted by OSX? Can we use launchd to recreate the directory and run automount? To prevent automounting with root permissions use indirect map instead of direct See AutoFS whitepaper. Another solution a little bit more hacky is to leverage Applescript for the mount, the cons are that you need to use a custom script and is a little more tedious to setup, the advantages are that the credentials are stored in keychain and this solution should be more resistant to apple updates, I believe fooling the Volumes path is a bug which may be addressed at some point.


Many thanks for the clearly detailed steps! I think I replicated all of them but I must be doing something wrong because in the end I'm not able to see the content of my mounted NFS share. From what I can judge, "VideoEditing" share is mounted. Problem is that no file appears here.

It looks like no rights are set to access sub-folders in the share. Did anyone encounter a similar problem? Hello, I used your trick to mount my nfs share. It mount but I can't list or access it. I always end with "ls: : Permission denied" as a user and with sudo. Every new folder created within my share is "read only" and I have to 'chmod' every time I create a folder.

Is there a way to set permissions of new folders? Regarding getting mounts visible in Finder even across reboots. Instead create a suitable directory somewhere you are happy with.

I choose the root of the mac's harddrive and named according to the server I was connecting to. Then use the autofs facility as described at the top of this post to create a set of mount points within this directory. Of course if it is an NFS3 share you need to use the appropriate mount option in this autofs stanza. Now they are mounted.

Open Finder and browse to the mount points. You can then use Finder to drag the individual mount point directories into the Devices side bar area. An important note here. This is upside down.

Your Answer

The only name that appears in the devices side bar is the name of the actual export directory on the server. Go figure? But hey, at least you can tell one server apart from another by placing all the mount points from a common server in the same root directory. I have no idea what Finder will do if you have 2 servers with identically named exports.

Automounting NFS share in OS X into /Volumes

I would suggest shuffling the mounts in the side bar up to the top, they are then mounted before any other slower devices like for example USB sticks. Skip to content.

Report back. I get the same message as before. OMV 4. Thanks very much for your help. Take out the username, nfs does have authentication. Does it really appear as readonly in the mount table? NO still the same. I say it's read-only because any attempt to drop a file on it results in failure. If I hovers a file over it I get no-access sign. System log shows Feb 5 nas rpc.
