    Hi,
    I'm trying to prevent a partitions from mounting at boot. I created this /etc/fstab file:

    Code:
    # jan
    # HFS Data
    /dev/disk1s2		/Users/me/Data     hfs    rw
    
    # NFS Data
    /dev/disk1s3		none     			nfs    rw,noauto
    
    but after a boot, the /dev/disk1s3 is still mounted:

    Any ideas why it's not working ?

    Thanks,
    T

    bump again. I tired using the UUID in the /etc/fstab but the partition is still getting mounted:


    Code:
    # jan
    # HFS Data
    UUID=945B27AC-2953-3DAB-B440-220B95F4CFEC /Users/jan/Data     hfs    rw
    
    # NFS Data
    UUID=188F3193-8F53-D618-9918-D60238D6021A    none       nfs    rw,noauto
