Description Jeffrey Needham 2008-06-24 22:23:29 UTC
Description of problem: When I did an update install from RHEL5.1 to RHEL5.2, some process removed my existing GFS mount point entries from my /etc/fstab file Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RHEL5.2 (Released) How reproducible: I performed an NFS-based update install on a fully configured CS4/GFS1 cluster node with mounted GFS volumes. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Execute an NFS Update install 2. Upon successful install and reboot, check the fstab 3. Actual results: both my GFS and NFS mounts were removed as my fstab was overwritten Expected results: /etc/fstab untouched or archived somewhere, at the very least Additional info: Looks more like an overwrite without doing a backup (that I could find).
Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2008-07-25 17:02:36 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
Comment 2 Ludek Smid 2008-07-25 22:03:55 UTC
Unfortunately the previous automated notification about the non-inclusion of this request in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 used the wrong text template. It should have read: this request has been reviewed by Product Management and is not planned for inclusion in the current minor release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. If you would like this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?" or raise an exception.

In RHEL6, we will be making a backup of the /etc/fstab file just for cases like this, in addition to understanding more types of filesystems. I'm going to close this as NEXTRELEASE for now. However if it's really critical to look at for 5.4, feel free to reopen and set the appropriate flag so we can consider it.
