    I had a NAS on my network at one time but sold it, but OS X still attempts to mount it every time that I restart my iMac, and complains via a pop-up that it is not available. I do not see it listed as an auto-mount under my login settings, so I don't know how to remove it or where the information to auto-mount is coming from. It gets annoying to have to cancel the pop-up upon every boot.

    Try this article and see if it helps. If your NAS shows up there, #-comment it out or remove the line.

    Code:
    sudo nano /private/etc/auto_master
    Code:
    #
    # Automounter master map
    #
    +auto_master            # Use directory service
    /net                    -hosts          -nobrowse,hidefromfinder,nosuid
    /home                   auto_home       -nobrowse,hidefromfinder
    /Network/Servers        -fstab
    /-                      -static
    #/somewhere/OLD_NAS
    
    Code:
    ctrl+x, y, enter
    Code:
    sudo automount -vc
