I'm currently programming a website and it's connecting to Ubuntu 12.04 linux VM on Windows Azure for database connections. The issue I'm having is that if the VM is restarted the attached disk I added for the db data files does not auto mount after the boot. I've added an entry in /etc/fstab (entry below) without any luck.
- What do I need to do to get this second drive (sdc1) to auto mount on boot in Azure?
- Does the auto mount happen BEFORE postgresql service starts? If not mounted before Postgresql, what do I need to do to have postgres start after its mounted?
- I'm also having to set
sudo blockdev --setra 2048 /dev/sdc1after the reboot as well. How do I get that setting persisted after reboot on the attached drive?

Note: That isn't the UUID I'm using. I made it up just in case for security reasons.
