CODE

Example file is /etc/fstab:
/dev/mapper/Volume00-usr /usr                    ext4    defaults        1 2
/dev/mapper/Volume00-var /var                    ext4    defaults  1 2
/dev/mapper/Volume00-crash /var/crash            ext4    defaults  1 2
/dev/mapper/Volume00-swap swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

Need to uncomment lines after the "############COMMENTED" match,
and comment lines after "#NFS static" but before "############COMMENTED".

I tried:

CODE

# i=$(df -Ph |egrep "fs5|fs1" |grep -v dmz |awk '{print $6}'); do var=$i; num=$(awk -v var="$var" '$2==var && $1 ~ /omhq11ad/{print $1}' fstab); sed "${num} s/# //" fstab; done 
but that doesn't work. The lines to be uncommented and commented only need to be done if the filesystems are currently mounted.
