Automount will umount the NFS share if it is not used for configured time of seconds (check man automount).
It will also mount the NFS if an application / user wants to access the specified mountpoint.
What is strange here if you are using automount, you should not use /etc/fstab entries or mount it by hand !
Thanks for reply and that is what it bothers me as well. You don't need to have auto mount when you are going to mount it permanently. Since it was configure long time ago by someone who left the company and no one has bothered to ask about it.
I also understand how auto mount works and from configuration i can see that it gets unmounted after 600 sec as specified.
Informed my supervisor and he told me that there was one option that made them always visible which i am not aware of.
Any idea what that option could be ?

It would be useful to see if any of the directories are under a filesystem that has not mounted for another reason. Do you have old versions of /etc/fstab available?
Please paste your output in CODE tags.
Thanks for reply. These mount points were working fine until system got rebooted and we dont have a proper reason on first place why it was rebooted. After rebooting only this issue was occurred.
Mount points are logically present but not able to view them when df is used. when tried to manually mount them it says it is already mounted and and busy.
I dont have any older versions of fstab as well.
Here i am looking to find if there is any option that i am not aware of that made them always visible on the client.
Any info would be great.
