there is no need to down server.after you edit fstab file,
just type
#mount -a

The mount command will only work if you have previously setup your NFS server and also configured your local system to use the automount features. Has this ever worked before? If not, there are a number of steps on both machines that are needed before the mount command will work.

On the source box
1.make sure that the nfs server servcies are started. If not; you have to start the nfs services.
2. vi /etc/exports file and add
/sap/mnt
3. exportfs -a (will export all the dir in /etc/exports file)
4. exportfs (will show the currently exported dirs from source box

On the client:
1. make a mount point (dir)
mkdir /tempmnt
2. mount the exported dir from the source to the client system
mount sourcebox:/sap/mnt /tempmnt


The config file: /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf
