Re: [Linux-cluster] Correct syntax for gfs entries in /etc/fstab (REHEL 5.2)

If you want the gfs file systems to be mounted at boot time, get rid

Same goes for if you run the gfs init script manually.

Entries in fstab for GFS are not mounted until after the cluster is
running, which is why we have a separate gfs init script that runs
after the cman and clvmd scripts.  It's designed to process the gfs
entries in fstab that were ignored before the cluster was up, but it
treats the noauto mount option the same as the other mounts, meaning
it won't mount them when the script runs if they have noauto.

I think the confusion here comes from people thinking that without "noauto" on their GFS entries, the system will attempt to mount at boot time (before the cluster services). Perhaps it needs to be documented somewhere (I notice that fstab(5) and mount(8) man pages don't mention the GFS exclusion)?
