I have a 3 box setup, one main server, 2 slaves.
On both slave, in the fstab entry, I have this : /usr/home/amnet nfs rw,noatime,noauto 0 0

The problem is, in both slave, the /usr partition is set to 50go of space. only 2.7 is taken by application.
But, the nfs partition take the other part of the 50 go, leaving me nearly zero space.

How can I mount this partition at this exact place without taking the space left on the /usr part, anyone know ?

Just curious as to what linux distributions you are running on these boxes.

If I follow your question, mounting a share as a subdirectory will not use any actual space on the parent partition. For example you can mount any removable media to anywhere in the tree say your flash drive
/dev/sda1 to /usr/my_flash. The amount of free space on /usr will not decrease. If for some reason the nfs share is not being mounted then you will use hard drive space on /usr. The mount command without any
options will display what is actually mounted.

Post the output of the command:
fdisk -l (that is a small L and you must be root)
