    nfs automounting on one machine but not ubuntu 18.04

    i have a machine in my garage running lubuntu 16.04
    its fstab is as follows


    192.168.2.5:/data/trunk /home/userguy/Trunk nfs rw,hard,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14 0 0
    192.168.2.5:/data/trunk/video /home/userguy/Trunk/video nfs rw,hard,intr,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14 0 0

    works great out there. just installed ubuntu 18.04 in the house on a system.. installed the needed nfs-common
    and used the same fstab contents..
    and no dice. no automount.
    but sudo mount-a works from terminal.
    but mount -a (non sudo) or trying to mount from the file manager spits out a "root only bro" error
    help?

    Did you modify the export on the server to allow the new machine access? Prove it.
    Simplify and retest.

    Are all connections wired ethernet?

    mounting requires root/sudo. And NFS access by root from a different machine is usually converted to nobody access.
