    /home not mounting after reboot


    Hi All

    I have number of Red Hat enterprise Linux installs. Versions 5.2 5.3 5.4 and 5.5.
    I have the same problem with all of them.

    I have /home on it's on partition and every time I reboot /home does not mount.

    Has anyone come across this issue before?

    I've tried changing the FStab, but still having the same problem

    Hey Mike
    Thanks for the reply.

    Have look.. Nothing strange looking.

    It's funny because I also have the same issue on a machine that /home is not on a seperate partition.

    I spotted something today, with this machine.
    If try the following
    [root@waldorf home]# mkdir test
    mkdir: cannot create directory `test': No such file or directory
    [root@waldorf home]#
    But if I stop autofs
    services autofs stop
    I can create a directory with no issue.


    Weird eh..

    Maybe your labels are messed up?

    What does blkid say?
    Code:
    # blkid
    Also it sounds like something is up with your automounter. Check your /etc/auto.master file and all files referenced from there for anything auto-mounting /home.

    Nothing of note with blkid

    I'm surprised that I haven't seen this problem anywhere on the net. I've build a lot of Red Hat machines and this happens on all of them. It only happens on redhat.
