In reference to a previous post.
Having the exact issue but on SuSE 11 SP1, with new install of SF 6.0.
I tried the fix in the technote listed but it still does not work.
Here is my /etc/fstab
/dev/vx/dsk/iso_dg/iso_vol /iso-nfs vxfs _netdev,hotplug 0 1
If I comment the line in fstab then the system will boot normal, and I can mount the volume manually no issues. But with fstab the system boots into maintenance mode with no network, no vxvm, no mount.
Could you check the boot.msg for any 'vx' related messages (vxportal, vxfs etc.)
> Check if netfs is supposed to start while booting up :
# chkconfig -list | grep netfs
> Check the boot sequence. All the local OS filesystems (other than this) should get mounted before the VxFS filesystem is attempted to mount.
> Try with adding _netdev entry in /etc/init.d/boot.localfs :
fsck $FSCK_PROGRESSBAR -R -A -m -a $FSCK_FORCE -t noopts=hotplug,_netdev
