Alright, I got it working. Instead of delaying at boot, i added a script that does the following:
If the directory is mounted –> do nothing
If the directory is not mounted:
– check if the NAS is reachable (using ping)
– if yes, mount

here’s my code (don’t forget to add noauto to your mountpoint in fstab)


#!/bin/bash

if mount | grep /mnt/Music > /dev/null; then
        echo "/mnt/Music already mounted - nothing to do"
else
        echo "/mnt/Music not mounted, pinging discworld"
        if ping -c 2 "myServer" >/dev/null; then
                mount /mnt/Music
                echo "/mnt/Music successfully mounted"
        fi
fi

in the end, i’m calling this script every minute in crontab:

* * * * * root /usr/local/bin/mount_nas.sh

Thanks for your help heiner!
