Description Tom Hughes 2011-08-25 11:16:16 UTC
Description of problem:

If I add a new automount to /etc/fstab and then run "systemctl daemon-reload" then I would expect it to notice the new mount and create the necessary units for it but it doesn't seem to.

I can see from strace that systemd is rereading fstab but it doesn't seem to act on the contents in the way I was expecting.

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


How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a new automount to /etc/fstab
2. Run systemctl daemon-reload
3. Look for the new mount point, or for the new unit in the systemctl output
Actual results:

No unit or mount point appears.

Expected results:

Unit and mount point appear.

Ignore me... It was there, it just wasn't started.
