FIXED for me at least. And I have no idea how. I've run through the logs from when it wasn't working to now when it is and I cannot for the life of my see any different. What is different and I don't know if it's a coincidence is when I execute

gluster volume status

On both nodes they both say Task Status of Volume glustervol1 where as before in server2 it was the hostname of the box. I have no idea how that happened. But it did... Don't know if that fixed it or what but it did it on it's own after numerous reboots.

Good luck.

STILL?! There's a lot of writing on this from 2014 ish on ubuntu and 14.04 using init. I'm running centos 7.3-1611 fully patched with kernel 3.10.0-514.10.2.el7, and gluster volumes still don't mount after reboot on servers where the lvm bricks and the client vol mount are on the same server.

I have 3 boxes

  • server1 (server peer1) and client
  • server2: (server peer2) and client
  • server3: client only

They are using lvm backend. And the glustervol should mount to /data/glusterfs. The issue isn't present on server3 where it's only a client. It connects and mounts using the same rules as the other servers. I've dug into the data logs, into selinux into the start up log. I can't find a way around it. I've considered CTBD and tried autofs to no avail.

What's expected

This works by running the manual mount -t glusterfs... or by executing mount -a with the rules in my fstab. But it will not work on boot. I've read that it's something to do with the mounts trying to happen before the daemon started. What is the best workaround for this? Is it to edit systemd files? Does anyone know a fix?

This is a snippet of a fresh boot while trying to mount through fstab where it's saying that there is no brick process running.

  • This has literally just fixed itself... after 5 hours so hair pulling now they mount on reboot. I changed nothing. FML. – Iasan Mac an Lighiche Apr 3 '17 at 16:57

    ^ LOL Seriously, though I've had this same issue when using server nodes as clients. It's a race condition, and the fstab is pretty stupid. I solved the issue by creating a systemd unit file for mounting glusterfs via FUSE that called a dependency on the volume daemon being started first. – Spooler Apr 3 '17 at 17:24
  • One could also get away with using the automounter for this. In fact, since it's a network filesystem, you probably should be using autofs. – Spooler Apr 3 '17 at 17:25
  • The initial idea was "does it work" after all this trouble It feels a bit sketchy for our production use case. We have Ceph, but to get this in place took less than an hour and then a few more of me screaming profanities. – Iasan Mac an Lighiche Apr 4 '17 at 13:44

1st post the recommended solution

Perhaps you could try

ip:/volume /dir glusterfs defaults,noauto,x-systemd.automount,x-systemd.device-timeout=30,_netdev 0 0.

refer archwiki-fstab#remote filesystem

Beacuse my OS is Cent6.9 without systemd, so it does not work for me.(maybe there are some options for init, please tell me if you know :) )

2nd problem description

I had added rule in fstab, but glusterfs could not be automatically mounted after booted. Ver 3.10.

I execute command mount -a, the filesystem could be mounted.

Saw log file /etc/log/boot.log, it find that filesystem was mounted failed.

Saw log file /var/log/gluster/<your gluster volume name>.log, it said that connected gluster server failed (but ping server, it is fine).

I think that maybe network was not ready while mounting?

3th my inelegant solution

I search many issues, blogs or forums, the problem was not be solved...👿

In the end, I given up , and added a command in /etc/rc.local

sleep 30s
mount -a

This solution is ugly(maybe), but the world will be beautiful again after system reboot.😂

#gluster volume set glustervol1 performance.cache-size 32MB

set your read cache low memory
