Network fstab entries don't mount at boot
 
I have several cifs fstab entries that aren't being mounted at boot, and I don't know why. Once the OS finishes booting, I can do "mount -a" as root, and they mount fine. They stay mounted until I unmount them or reboot. The issue is that this machine is multi-boot, and I reboot frequently, so it becomes a serious pain in the rear.

Anyway, here's part of my fstab:

//10.0.0.12/data /media/net/fs2/data cifs credentials=/etc/samba/fs2.auth 0 0
//10.0.0.12/web /media/net/fs2/web cifs credentials=/etc/samba/fs2.auth 0 0


I also grepped my /var/log/messages, and this is what I see:

I'm running OpenSUSE 10 on a Dell 3000 series workstation (3.0 GHz processor, 1 GB ram, etc).

I'm not exactly sure what to think. Any ideas?

Finlay 12-29-2005 03:48 PM

fstab mounting is done before the network card is initialized.
option:

run the mount commands from rc.local

tisource 12-29-2005 04:41 PM

I'm confused.

1) These are network mounts. Don't I need the card AND the IP stack loaded BEFORE I mount a network resource?

2) Doesn't Linux automatically mount stuff in fstab? I would think, that by putting it into my fstab, it would auto mount at boot. I didn't think I needed to add a manual mount command anywhere in rc. I listed my rc5.d because I thought maybe something needed to be shuffled around.

I'm not trying to downplay your comment, I'm just a little lost. Thanks for the help!

tisource 12-29-2005 04:45 PM

I don't have a rc.local. I have a boot.d, though. Is this the same thing?

Finlay 12-29-2005 05:20 PM

not sure what the file is in suse, but basically there is a place you can run commands on boot.

i don't know a way, or know if it is possible to mount network mount points from fstab at boot, i always have mounted them from a script that runs from my rc.local file that sends me an email if the drive was not reconnected.

i put them in the fstab, but not to load on boot.

tisource 12-29-2005 06:07 PM

Allright, that makes sense. I assume 'noauto' is the fstab option that tells linux not to attempt to mount it at boot time?

Thanks

Finlay 12-29-2005 06:14 PM

yes that is correct

tisource 12-29-2005 06:54 PM

I'm sorry, I'm still struggling with this.

I put my CIFS mounts on noauto, and then put 'mount -a' in a shell script, and symlinked it in boot.d, so that it the last boot.d script (S14netmount is what I called it).

I rebooted, and nothing. It appears 'mount -a' ignores noauto entries.

So, I took out the noauto option, and then put 'mount -a' in /etc/init.d/boot.local, rebooted, and got the same results: nothing.

So exactly what do you do? If you don't want it to attempt to automount when it reads fstab (during boot), and put 'noauto' in fstab, how do you tell linux to mount the 'noauto' entries in fstab without using 'mount -a' option?

Should the net mounting occur before the runlevel is initiated, or before? In the past, I have put 'mount -a' in the rc5.d (the default runlevel on this box), and it didn't work.

This issue has eluded me for some time, varying distros.

Thanks again...
