You are correct, I misread the prev post. mount /home fails.

# mount /home
mount: /dev/ad0s1h: Device busy

There are two mount points for /home. One on the local disk (ad0s1h) and
the NFS mount that I mount over /home for shell users, so that HTTTD can
find the public_html dirs.

The complete fstab on HTTPD:
# Device                Mountpoint      FStype  Options         Dump
/dev/ad0s1b             none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/ad0s1a             /               ufs     rw              1       1
/dev/ad0s1h             /home           ufs     rw              2       2
/dev/ad0s1d             /tmp            ufs     rw              2       2
/dev/ad0s1g             /usr            ufs     rw              2       2
/dev/ad0s1e             /var            ufs     rw              2       2
/dev/ad0s1f             /var/tmp        ufs     rw              2       2
/dev/acd0               /cdrom          cd9660  ro,noauto       0       0
NFSD:/home2             /home           nfs     rw,bg           0       0

This worked before I upgraded my webserver (HTTPD) but now it fails to
mount on reboot yet succeeds manually.

Any Ideas?
