What is causing the non-availability? Is the file server down, or not

if the server is reachable before you try to mount from it.
I wrote a small script file, which try to access some servers. I know
that some of them, are not switched on all day long. So, the idea is to
start the script and connect to all servers available...
Normally, I'd consider testing to see if the server is up before
attempting to connect. Assuming the servers are configured to respond to
a ping (definitely not always the case), perhaps
ping -qc2 server_a
if [ $? = "0" ] ; then
ping -qc2 server_b
and so on. If the server is configured to not respond to pings (ICMP
Echo), then use something like hping2 or hping3 (http://www.hping.org/ -
but it doesn't seem to have been updated since 2005) to see if a UDP
port is reachable.
Thank you. I will try it
thanks again for your help
