Centos6.3 server hangs upon bootup
Hello everyone.

I am having a problem with my centos Box hanging on bootup.
It is currently hanging at the autoMount load process...

He are the changes I had made leading up to this hanging on bootup event shown below:

*/ I had logged in remotely and upgraded the 'rsyslog' package from I believe 4.x to a 5.x version and then reboot. This system never came back. When I was able to access the server physically I had seen that the server was hanging at the 'NFSD' service so I logged in 'singleuser' mode and turned off the only NFS related service I found which was 'NFSLOCK' and then did a reboot.

This time the server is hanging at the 'autoMount' service. I then undid my previous changes but I am still getting hanging at the 'autoMount' service on bootup....

Any suggestions anyone??

automount is handled by autofs service.

pls. try:
#service autofs stop

or type
and uncheck autofs
save and reboot, and try again.

have you changed the hostname on box recently?(Note:- it just wild guess based on past expirence)

I would preffer to comment further only after knowing contents of logs

what does boot.log say?

try getting us the output of dmesg

thank you

you can use soft mount option to your mount parameters, you can make filesystem remains active on reboot
