Description Hans de Goede 2008-09-10 17:21:14 EDT
Using boot.iso and install.img dated 2008-09-10, and trying to put /home on an iscsi disk, /home would not get mounted as the configfile under /var/lib/iscsi/nodes for the used iscsi "node" had the node.start attribute set to "manual" changing this to "automatic" fixes this.

Interesting enough the opposite has just been done in RHEL-5, their things have been changed to not set the startup to automatic, see bug 437891.

What is happening here is that with / on iscsi we do not want to try and start the node(s) corresponding to the raid / logvol / partition used to autostart because they are already started and the node database may even contain wrong info causing problems as described in bug 437891. However for /somedir on iscsi we do want to set the node to autostart, as there the node will not have been started from the initrd, so without starting it we won't have a connection to the disk for /somedir.

I have discussed this with pjones and the plan is to write a patch which sets node.startup to automatic for non / containing iscsi nodes. This patch will at first only go to Fedora.

A patch which sets node.startup to automatic for non / containing iscsi nodes has just been pushed to git, closing.
