Default mounting issues???

Hello...i am some What new to freeBSD ( and to open source in general). here is my problem

I am wanting to know a way to restart the drive mountings. When I edit the fstab file I have to reboot for the changes to take effect?

Is there a command to restart the drive mounting process?

P.S: i think if i do sudo mount -a, this will should do the trick, however, when i did this it gave me an error message saying, permission denied"[tcp] operations:/var/log/ehds/combinedServerLogs: Permission denied"
all the permissions for the mount folders are set to true.

P.S 2:# in case you guys need more info here you go. Please help as i am completly stuck!

Are you sure you have the required privileges when running this command?

you want mount -u -o OPTIONS /dev/SLICE
example in single user mode, root is read only
mount -u -o rw /
or
mount -u -o rw /dev/ad0s1a

Looks that you are not running those commands as root. Try running them after typing the following command:

Code:
$ su -

to use mount -u -o Options .....
you need to actually mount drive at first

Replace SLICE with propriate disk slice....

[root@ngdev1 ~]# echo $USER
root


I dont understand(sorry but i am new to freeBSD) i created a directory on one server and i am trying to mount it on another server, i edited the fstab file that does the mounting and with the command mount -a i should be able to reload the fstab file to create the new mounting points that i have created; but insted it keeps giving me a permission denied message(i am running as root). and i am not sure what you mean with slice and how that fits into this problem, again sorry for the dumb question but i am running freeBSD and i am new to it.

For better understanding of slices: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO...ISK-SLICE-PART

On your machine "operations", I suppose you have your NFS server configured. Is your client machine (the one you are running the mount from) allowed to connect in your "exports" file of the NFS server?

Operation not permitted
means that the operation is not permitted for whatever reason.
One of them can be to attempt to mount a label which has not been marked clean, and this is not permitted.
Simply do a fsck and try again.

No man, he tries to change permissions on remote disk
he have no rights to change disk permissions on remote disk, cause he's not sysadmin on that machine
