fsck truncates boot sequence if iscsi device is not present and lv placed in /etc/fstab
Last modified: 2007-11-16 20:14:55 EST
Description of problem:
I just hit this with LVM2 over iSCSI on RHEL4 U4 (ish). Boot stops at repair
filesystem prompt until you enter a password. If you're not at the console or
don't have the console this could be bad.
This problem looks similar:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# uname -a
Linux gfs1.hpperf.rdu.redhat.com 2.6.9-42.ELsmp-r5 #7 SMP Wed Nov 15 18:48:03
EST 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
[root@gfs1 ~]# lvm version
LVM version: 2.02.06 (2006-05-12)
Library version: 1.02.14-cvs (2006-11-28)
Driver version: 4.5.0
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create iscsi lun(s) and make an lv with a filesystem
2. Put lv in /etc/fstab with _netdev tag
3. Make sure iscsi service is turned off with checkconfig
Boot stops at filesystem repair prompt.
Boot continues with some warning or error displayed.
Will investigate - might need to check for latest versions.
