issues with automounted drives in Fedora
Posted on 2011-05-02
I have a server that has 2 fibre channel drives that are mounted on startup. they also automount home drives for users on demand.
I changed the run level the other day (to 3 from 5) and after a reboot, the drives were not mounting. I tested restarting the server again and had the same issues. I changed the run level back to 5 and then the drives mounted after a reboot.
I ran chkconfig and the services are the same for runlevel 5, except for gpm, so I looked under /etc/rc.d/ and looked in rc3.d. I saw that there are 2 simlinks listed that are as follows:
Autofs is used for the mounts so I am assuming that this is the cause of the problem, but I am not sure why these links are there or if they are in fact causing the issue.
Can anyone help me understand what these links are?
