Default iSCSI + CentOS 5.1 +_netdev problem

Dear Srs,

I'm trying to automount an iSCSI device at system startup, this is
the configuration:


- CentOS 5.1, with kernel 2.6.18-53.1.14.el5PAE, i686 arch
- iscsi-initiator-utils 6.2.0.865-0.8.el5
- iSCSI target is a Infortrend A16E-G2130-4

I have solved the "initial_login_retry_max" problem [1] and Open-
iSCSI logs into Infortrend target without problems, with 10 retries
in the parameter, but the partition is not automounted.


Start scripts order appears OK:

# ls -1 /etc/rc3.d/S*
/etc/rc3.d/S07iscsid
/etc/rc3.d/S10network
/etc/rc3.d/S12syslog
/etc/rc3.d/S13iscsi
/etc/rc3.d/S25netfs
/etc/rc3.d/S55sshd
/etc/rc3.d/S90crond
/etc/rc3.d/S99local

But "_netdev" marked iSCSI device is not mounted, this is the fstab
file:


LABEL=/vz /vz ext3
_netdev,rw,noatime,nodiratime,commit=60,data=write back 0 0


I have tried using LABELs, UUIDs, device names in fstab file.. and
the problem is the same.


If I put a "mount /vz" into "/etc/rc3.d/S99local" partition is
mounted without problem..


I think the problem is in the "netfs" start script, I see no option
to mount "_netdev" marked entries.. only a call to the command:


(..)
fsck -A -T -R -a -t opts=_netdev
(..)

I have solved the problem adding a "sleep 1" before the fsck execution:

(..)
echo $STRING
sleep 1
fsck -A -T -R -a -t opts=_netdev
rc=$?
(..)

Anyone with the same problem? What can be wrong? I have no problem
with the same scenario on CentOS 4.6.. thanks!!


Regards,
