Mount /etc/fstab

Can you please help me mount below filesystem in fstab ( I have rhel 5 )

as the line is long - it is not taking as single line

How can break this in 2 line and act as one ....please help

Code:	/ttk/tibco/tibco_cfg/serv/cfgttp/ems/data-Service 	hard,intr,nosuid        0 0

It doesn't matter how long the line is. If it wraps in your editor that doesn't mean it's spanning multiple lines in the file.

cat -n /etc/fstab

If you've pasted it, and that's inserted a newline, then join the two lines using Shift-j.

This looks like a mount to a remote system. You should look at using autofs instead. If for some reason that remote system becomes unreachable, and you reboot, it could possibly hang the box while attempting to mount that remote filesystem. With autofs the filesystem is only mounted when it is accessed.

Thanks...Issue was the syntax of fstab ( for nfs filesystem ) was not correct. So, it was treating the line as 2 diff line;s. Once's that is corrected long line worked fine.. Thanks for the all help.
