On remotely rebooting a 12.04 machine I found it hanging at the "unable to mount soandso: Skip, Manual Abort? " (That's pretty much how I remember the message) The machine was basically stopped there until I hooked up a keyboard and pressed "s". I can see the rationale for the question, but I'd really like to know where to configure it or turn it off altogether. A mandatory question like this makes sense in a desktop environment but for servers I'd like more flexibility. So where do I fiddle and tweak this?

Remove the mount by editing or commenting it out in /etc/fstab and replace it with an explicit mount command in /etc/rc.local.

Thanks. At the very least it's a workaround. –  René Pieters Jun 10 '12 at 17:06
