Subject: CephFS in fstab

Package: ceph-fs-common
Version: 10.2.11-2


I'm running CephFS filesystem on Proxmox servers. Virtual machines runs Devuan 
ASCII or Devuan Beowulf. Almost all the virtual machines will need access to a 
CephFS storage, and services like Apache or nsd will require access to CephFS 
to run.

So I've put CephFS entry in fstab with an existing mount point not forgetting 
the _netdev option. Manual mount with "mount /mountpoint" works just 

At start-up, the mount is not done and services that depends on it are failing 
to start.

I had the same issue with GlusterFS. NFS in an other hand works perfectly, 
thanks to a dedicated script called (as far as I remember) nfs-mount in 

I think the nfs-mount startup script should be renamed net-mount and any 
_netdev optioned entry in fstab should be mounted by it. Elsewhere, other 
network filesystem should come with dedicated mount script or a sample script 
in documentation.

Thank you,
