Um.....why wouldn't you have the NFS share automatically mount at boot
And/or, like Mr. Moenkeberg suggested:
MOUNT_CHK=`/bin/mount -l | /bin/grep $NFS_MNT | /usr/bin/wc -l`
if [ "$MOUNT_CHK" = 1 ]
echo "D'oh! You didn't mount the NFS share again!" > /var/log/rsync.log
Works for bash on linux anyways.
Tis what I do for local backups to a USB drive. Gotta make sure it's
actually plugged in or else your harddrive fills up REALLY quick.
