How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the F22 atomic image.
2. Look at systemctl output

Ok so this is nfs-utils wanting a new empty directory in /var for a private mount point.

Possible fixes:

 - Move the directory to /run/nfs, have it be created by systemd-tmpfiles
 - Have nfs-utils create the directory
 - Change rpm-ostree to make empty directories

Proposed as a Blocker and Freeze Exception for 22-final by Fedora user walters using the blocker tracking app because:

 This error occurs on first boot, and we really want all services to start out of the box on a clean Atomic installation.

--- Additional comment from Dan Mossor [danofsatx] on 2015-05-11 15:38:47 EDT ---

Discussed at the 2015-05-11 blocker review meeting[0]. Voted as AcceptedBlocker.

AGREED: 1219871 - RejectedBlocker AcceptedFreezeException - Atomic is not a release-blocking image and this bug does not affect any blocking images we know about, but accepted as an FE as fixing Atomic is a good thing if possible (adamw, 17:18:40)

--- Additional comment from Fedora Update System on 2015-05-21 14:13:23 EDT ---

nfs-utils-1.3.2-7.fc22 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 22.

--- Additional comment from awilliam@redhat.com on 2015-06-10 18:26:48 EDT ---

Clearing F22 accepted / nominated freeze exception status as F22 has shipped, per https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping/Trackers . You may nominate as an Alpha, Beta or Final freeze exception for F23 if desired using the web application - https://qa.fedoraproject.org/blockerbugs/propose_bug (though it is not currently set up for F23) - or by marking the bug as blocking AlphaFreezeException, BetaFreezeException, or FinalFreezeException.

--- Additional comment from Jan Kurik on 2015-07-15 10:10:52 EDT ---

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 23 development cycle.
Changing version to '23'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 23 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 23 End Of Life. Thank you.)

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 1 Colin Walters 2015-09-28 11:43:07 EDT
This also affects 7.2.
Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2016-08-10 18:37:22 EDT
Perhaps this could be cleaned up at the same time:

# rpm -V nfs-utils
.M.......    /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs

this is because rpm expects the permissions to be 755, but when mounted it's 555:

dr-xr-xr-x. 11 root root 0 Aug 10 15:34 /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs
