    A simple question on NFS

    I think I know the answer,but thought I'd ask here first before I mess it up.
    We have an grey box with the base SuSe code on it. We used the box to upload the base code to our Z/VM box.
    We no longer need the base code and it is set up as an NFS mount point.
    Last week someone unplugged the box and our prod systems(really none of them) would come up,all they did was hang. So I'd like to remove the mountpoint.
    So I'm thinking all I need to do is remove it(vi) from /etc/fstab and reboot the system.

    Is that all I need to do or are there other steps??

    That's all that's necessary. Instead of removing the entries, you could either comment them out with "#", or you could simply set them to have the option "noauto" instead of "auto". The "noauto" option means that the computer will NOT attempt to mount the partitions automatically on boot. However, the entry is still there for convenient manual mounting with the "mount" command.
