> After=network.target you want to use network-online.target, not (only) network.target.
you also may want to use Before=umount.target Before=remote-fs.target systemd will create an automatic mount unit for all mounts, so you can see what params it uses if you mount the NFS share manually (i.e. remove your mount unit file and mount from cmdline) and run systemctl show, e.g.: $ systemctl show mnt-nas-music.mount it also will dynamically create mount files for everything you have in /etc/fstab, at /run/systemd/generator/. Is there a reason you want to replace the fstab entry with a systemd mount unit file? ** Changed in: systemd (Ubuntu) Status: New => Incomplete -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to systemd in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1838464 Title: NFS volume not mounting with systemd Status in systemd package in Ubuntu: Incomplete Bug description: Hello, I'm unable to mount NFS volume at boot time with systemd.
