Re: [PLUG] network drive doesn't mount on boot after update--how to check why?

What does "mount -a" do after you unmou t?

/var/log/messages or /var/log/boot.log probably has some useful stuff in there

Ever since a major system update a few weeks ago (I hadn't run updates
in about 6 months; about 250 packages were updated) the system no longer
mounts a network drive on boot.

The relevant line in /etc/fstab is:
// /media/networkdrive cifs username=XXXXX,password=XXXXX,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0 0

Once the machine is up and running, I can do:
mount /media/networkdrive
and it mounts without issue.

Please forgive my asking basic questions, I am not an IT person by
profession. I assume there's a logfile I should check to see what's
going on, what's it called? Or otherwise, where would I start to get
this drive mounting at boot again?
