Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So there are a bunch of NICs and vlans on the server and after adding the last ones the auto mount of a network volume is not working. I can do it all right if i SSH in and use mount however it doesnt happen with fstab.

What I'm speculating is the interfaces that are needed to reach the networked storage come up too late, I have no experience with the startup so I have only a few bits of debug you show such as

# chkconfig --list
networking                0:off  1:off  2:off  3:off  4:off  5:off  6:off  S:on 
nfs-common                0:off  1:off  2:on   3:on   4:on   5:on   6:off  S:on 

(thats among others, do ask if you need to see other entries, I don't actually know what would be needed)

How can I make the nfs mounting be done at a later point, this above suggests to me that perhaps the nfs stuff happen too early?

How can I delay or change the order of events so that it'd mount with fstab, what to look for anyway?

Why is the networking service off? A mechanism should be in place to cause network mounts in fstab to be delayed until the network starts, but it looks like your network isn't started using the standard mechanism, which may cause the other to fail. –  depquid Apr 17 '13 at 15:21
    
Yeah it's actually a virtual machine on some cloud bullsh*t platform perhaps thats why, not sure. –  Recc Apr 17 '13 at 15:46

OK I could work around that by putting the mount command in rc.local (also worked as @reboot root mount -a in /etc/crontab). But if someone has suggestions about fixing it by changing the services startup that'd be nice to know.
