I've installed 12.04 server for the first time, and I like some of the changes to the configuration system (like using /etc/sudoers.d/ to store custom rules instead of editing the default sudoers file).
I'm trying to setup an automatically mounted volume, and noticed that there is now an
/etc/fstab.d/ on my server. I created a new file in the directory with the following contents:
# backupstore: large volume /dev/mapper/bagend-backupstore /mnt/backupstore ext4 auto,relatime,users,sync 0 0
But when I run
mount -a the volume is not mounted. Also, when I run
mount /mnt/backupstore or
/dev/mapper/bagend-backupstore I get told that the system couldn't find the entry in fstab (and to pre-empt: yes, the device and mount-point are correct - I can easily mount this with
mount -t ext4 /dev/mapper/bagend-backupstore /mnt/backupstore)
When I delete the file from
/etc/fstab.d/ and put the entry into the main
/etc/fstab file, I have no problems mounting the volume.
So: 1) Can the mount command be made to check for entries in
/etc/fstab.d/ and 2) if yes, what do I do to make it happen?
