Do you realy mean what you wrote in the Subject line:

Subject : Re: *nfs* mount by label not working.

That would be something like:
ask every server in the known universe if it has a nfs-export by
name backup1, choose one of them and mount it locally on /a.

If you use nfs you have to specify the server and the volume old
fashioned. Mounting by lable or uuid is supported by very few filesystems,
mainly by ext2 only.

What the kernel does is to read /proc/partitions and check if any
partition found there has the label or uuid you search for.
