comment Ubuntu server spontaneous reboot
Not very much here to help anybody diagnose and provide you with useful answers. Why are you so sure that your hardware is ok? Also, why not upgrade to a later version of Ubuntu because you may have some type of driver problem?

comment Ubuntu 14.04 does not recognize my battery
Ahh...am I missing something here? You have one of the following problems: (1) battery is dead and cannot be recharged - replace battery, (2) your charger is no longer working and battery is not recharged - replace the charger, (3) the battery in question is not the vendor choice and thus may no longer be meeting all the specifications the vendor requires, (4) mating problem inside the laptop where the battery is no longer making proper contact.

If you were tying to do this with NFS, I'd be suggesting using the autofs (automonter) capability.

comment When I login, I see “You have mail.”, but /var/mail/<username> is empty
I believe there is an environment variable that points to your mailbox. Check that out and ensure that it is pointing to the right place for YOUR mailbox.

Your question is a little bit unclear, can you provide a little more detail as to what specifically you are trying to do? We can all provide better guidance with more information.
