Description of problem:
The purpose of READONLY=yes in /etc/sysconfig/readonly-root is to do two things:
1) make a bunch of bind mounts that provide a writable area for things that actually need to write
2) tell initscripts not to remount the root RW
In the current RHEL7 it does the first but it still remounts the root FS RW.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo "READONLY=yes" > /etc/sysconfig/readonly-root
/ is mounted rw
/ ia mounrws ro
This is basically can't fix in initscripts, we don't control boot process anymore. So lets at least lets check if it is documented.
I presume you guys found a way around this. Can you share what you did?
This is more of a question for Trent rather than Jim
