I am using Red Hat Enterprise 6.3 and I have just mounted a new volume in one folder of my preference.

After reboot that mount point was lost and the volume was mounted at his original place.

In which place I can set my mount call so that I can have my volume always at the same place? Do I have to look at init.d or is there a better place?

/etc/fstab is the file where you should add all your mounts so that after reboot it gets mounted again. – Abhishek Anand Amralkar May 23 '13 at 16:30

/etc/fstab is the traditional configuration file to define permanent mounts.
