I just noticed that on 2 different servers I installed between October 2012 and March 2013, localmount is not registered to be started in any runlevel. The current handbook doesn't mention it at any point and I'm not sure this is still a problem for newer installations, but IMHO localmount should be setup to run in boot runlevel by default. Is there any reason I'm not aware of, why it is (or was) no longer set to run by default? The effect is that any partitions set up to be mounted in /etc/fstab do not get mounted on (re)boot. (It was pure coincidence that I noticed it; after a reboot last week a backup script failed on one server because it couldn't remount the backup LV, now I know why...)

I realize this reply isn't very timely, but I just made a fresh install and can verify that localmount is indeed in /etc/runlevels/boot/ as follows:
Code:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   22 Jul 11 16:52 localmount -> /etc/init.d/localmount


Other than that, I'm afraid I have no answer as to why your servers did not.

Nevertheless, thanks for the reply. :)

From the number of views (395) and replies (1) I would guess that there never was any reason why it shouldn't still have been in boot runlevel and this was some unnoticed bug.
