I hate hard nfs mounts
Posted on 2014-03-26
We have several servers and they were deployed with hard nfs mounts.
If you comment out nfs in /etc/fstab; reboot them; log in and mount the nfs mounts manually the system works fine.
If you don't comment out nfs in /etc/fstab; reboot them; the systems take forever to boot ( 20 minutes or more ).
Reengineering these system to softmounts is not an option.
I am looking for a solution that will check the systems and then mount the hard mounts.
what needs to be checked and what are the commands for them ?
do I need to check both sides of the nfs hard mount ?
Oh, Redhat 5/6, physical servers ( virtual in the future )
