Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've got my home directories on a nfs mount that should mount at boot. It tries to mount them before the network comes up, for some reason. I've read around, and it seems this happens often to a number of people. I can't seem to find a fix that works. Sometimes it mounts fine, other times not.
I've enabled the NetworkManager-wait-online.service service, but it doesn't seem to affect anything.
I've tried creating a script in init.d that runs mount -a and adding it to chkconfig at runlevel 3,4,5; that didn't help either.
Users are able to login without their home directories mounted, but there are scripting problems.
Ideally any of the network services should not start before the network comes up. You need to check the start and kill scripts of the default run level of the server.
Which distribution you are running on?
Whoops, forgot to post that. I'm running Fedora 16 LXDE spin.
Systemd seems to take care of the boot process. I've tried adding NetworkManager-wait-online.service to the NetworkManager.service unit's Wants, but that didn't seem to do anything. Not really terribly familiar with how systemd operates, so I'm at a loss as to how to fix this.

I think that the two nfs mounts in fstab are being added to systemd as sayre.mount and home-aos.mount. There are no files for them in /lib/systemd/system, I'm not sure where they come from; /etc/fstab is just my guess. Googling suggested that adding comment=systemd.automount to the entries in fstab would solve the problem, but that didn't help.
/etc/rc.d/rc.local is no longed included. However, you can create one and make it executable and it should run after reboot. You can create one under /etc/rc.d/rc.local, put the line I mentioned in my previous post, make it executable and reboot. See if that works.
