NFS Share not updating on /etc/fstab after changing the referenced shared folder device

  • Hi, as I tried to tell in the title, I had a problem when I changed the device of a shared folder that was being referenced by a NFS share.

    After changing the shared folder device I removed the old drive and after a couple of days I realized that I could not see any files through NFS. I could connect but there were not files.

    After a while I found that the old device mount point were still existing under /srv directory. Apparently when I changed the shared folder device, the NFS mount point were not updated on /etc/fstab, so I had to delete and recreate the NFS share to reflect the changes on fstab.

    After that I had to manually erase the old unused mount point from /srv that was serving as the empty dir I was seeing through NFS.


    Thank you and cheers.

  • I don't see in the code where it would mark fstab module dirty. Maybe it should? votdevsudo omv-salt deploy run fstab would have fixed your issue.
