davfs2 doesn't know "nofail" as option
Last modified: 2016-12-20 12:29:29 EST
Same issue as 783786, which was closed in F20 for inactivity.
Description of problem:
Davfs2 doesn't understand the "nofail" fstab option. As such, it's risky to have a a davfs mount in /etc/fstab, because davfs doesn't know about "nofail" as option, likely making systemd fail to boot if fails to mount it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'm using davfs2-1.4.7-6.fc23.x86_64
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put davfs2-based mount in /etc/fstab, with "nofail" option
2. Post-boot, attempt to mount
Error: "Unknown option nofail."
Mountpoint is mounted. Expected results can be obtained by removing the "nofail" option, at the risk of later boot-time problems.

: mount the WebDAV-resource <server-url>
on mountpoint <mountpoint>. Only root

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Confirming still present in Fedora 25.
