Further to some other discussion regarding getting the zfsutils-linux package working on Ubuntu 15.10, it does not appear that the normal zfs behaviour of automatic mounting during a reboot is yet working. Has anyone else encountered this issue?

I'm able to mount my zfs pool manually, whereas previous versions of zfs stable PPA automatically mounted pools.


The zfsutils-linux uses mountall to mount the pool, but mountall uses Upstart, which is not default for Vivid and Wily; systemd is.

To make it work properly you can add the correct systemd init scripts for ZFS. Put them in /etc/systemd/ and don't forget to edit the files: the directories in there are not correct.
