Re: Mounting an NFS directory in /etc/fstab

I do remember doing this a few years ago and I had to amend the order of some of the start-up scripts. Looking at my CentOS 5 box which is the only one I use as an NFS server, in /etc/rc3.d I see that I have S25netfs and S60nfs which means that it will attempt to mount the NFS file systems before it has started the NFS daemons. The solution was to rename the start up script so that netfs ran after nfs.
In CentOS 6, /etc/rc3.d and /etc/rc5.d both contain S24nfslock, S25netfs and S30nfs. Why would Red Hat put these startup scripts in the wrong order?. This is such an obvious problem that I cannot believe it was done by accident. I experimented with this by renaming S25netfs to S32netfs and I commented the mount.nfs4 commands that I had put in /etc/rc.d/rc.local and I uncommented the mount the nfs entries in /etc/fstab. It worked. I am glad that I learned about this problem now so I will know how to fix it when I take the RHCSA exam.
