Description Jonathan Lebon 2016-12-19 16:15:10 EST
Description of problem:

systemd fails to mount /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs because it runs before systemd-tmpfiles-setup.service, which creates the file structure there.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

# rpm-ostree status
State: idle
● rhel-atomic-host:rhel-atomic-host/7/x86_64/standard
       Version: 7.3.1 (2016-11-30 02:14:24)
        Commit: 42cfe1ca3305defb16dfd59cd0be5c539f19ea720dba861ed11e13941423ae86
        OSName: rhel-atomic-host

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot up 7.3.1-1.

Actual results:

/var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs isn't mounted.

Expected results:

/var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs is mounted.

Additional info:

As expected, doing `systemctl restart var-lib-nfs-rpc_pipefs.mount` later works.

This is also an issue in 7.3.0:

# rpm-ostree status

This is tripping selinux issues in cloud-init and therefore blocking enablement progress on Azure at this point.

Well, it's *one* issue I noticed from your Azure logs. I'm still not sure if it's *the* issue blocking you currently. The machine should boot up fine without that mount succeeding (and it does over here).
Comment 4 Brent Baude 2016-12-19 17:57:59 EST
It is tripping an OSError in cloud-init; hence the failure.  Would be good to see this resolved so I can eliminate it as root cause and so forth
Comment 6 Jonathan Lebon 2016-12-20 11:06:15 EST
OK right, we need the same fix as upstream in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1219871 here:


Transferring to nfs-utils component.
