Hello all.

Sorry I have to repost this. Unfortunately I didn't get any answer and
it would be nice I could solve the problem as this is a go-no go point
in the decision whether or not the glusterfs will have to be used in the
production environment.

Tnx in advance for help and have a nice day

I have a system with several VMs, two used as glusterfs servers. If I
restart the whole system, as the VMs with the glusterfs volumes are
quite slow to boot, I have a problem with other VMs that are coming up
faster than the glusterfs VMs. In the client VMs the automounter hangs
as it is started before that the glusterfs volumes are 100% up and running.

This my auto.direct file:


And the error message is

#> ls /storage
ls: cannot open directory /storage: File o directory not existing

# glusterfs --version
glusterfs 3.5.2 built on *bleep*

By restarting the automounter, after that the glusterfs is
up-and-running, the problem disappears as expected.

May I ask if there is any way to solve this issue with the automounter
or if I have to create a script that is waiting the volumes (and which
is the recommended way?)?

Tnx and have a nice day
