Validate mountpoints on solaris server after server reboot

anyone please let us know how to write shell script to find the missing mountpoints after server reboot.
i want to take the mountpount information before server reboot, and validate the mountpoints after server reboot if any missing.please let us know the shell script from begining to end as i don't have knowledge on scripting.

Hi VenkatReddy786,

Welcome to forum, please use code tags for any commands or codes. you can go through once with all forum rules. Also let me give you some basic ideas here for same and please try it by yourself and let us know if you face any issues with what you would have tried so far.

i- you can make a script for checking mount points by using df command check them before and after activity and compare them after activity they should be same as before activity.

ii- To ake a permanent solution, you can check fstab file in /etc/fstab in case of bash, make sure here mount points are not soft. Meaning if they are mentoned as soft mount points they will not come up after reboot. This should be permanent fix for the issue.

EDIT: In case of solaris it should be /etc/vfstab.

kindly try out the steps and let us know if you face any issues.

You can glean a great deal of additional information from the mount tab.
