2016-11-22 17:57:27 Scott Moser description During provisioning cloud-init adds an entry for the ephemeral disk in /etc/fstab. After provisioning this entry is correct and points to "/dev/disk/azure/resource-part1". This symlink is created dynamically by 66-azure-storage.rules. For some reason after the first reboot cloud-init overwrites the fstab entry and changes the "/dev/disk/azure/resource-part1" to the device name that it points to, i.e. /dev/sdb1. However, this is incorrect since /dev/sd* device names are not persistent. Repro: 1) Provision an Ubuntu VM on Azure (I tested with 14.04.4) 2) The fstab entry for the ephemeral disk (/mnt) correctly points to "/dev/disk/azure/resource-part1". 3) Reboot the VM (sudo reboot) 4) The fstab entry now incorrectly points to /dev/sdb1 instead of the symlink. Impact: There is a chance that the customer's ephemeral disk will not be mounted properly if the device names change after a reboot.

Impact: There is a chance that the customer's ephemeral disk will not be mounted properly if the device names change after a reboot. Related bugs: * bug 1611074: Reformatting of ephemeral drive fails on resize of Azure VM [Impact] There is a chance that Azure users' ephemeral disks will not be mounted properly if the device names change after a reboot. [Test Case] 1) Provision an Ubuntu VM on Azure (I tested with 14.04.4) 2) The fstab entry for the ephemeral disk (/mnt) correctly points to /dev/disk/cloud/azure_resource 3) Reboot the VM (sudo reboot) 4) The fstab entry still points to /dev/disk/cloud/azure_resource (and not /dev/sdb) [Regression Potential] This introduces new udev rules to the cloud-init package. These will only cause entries to appear on Azure. It also makes a minor change to how cloud-init will write to /etc/fstab on Azure. Both of these changes will have no impact outside of Azure, and are the intended behaviour on Azure. [Original Bug Report] During provisioning cloud-init adds an entry for the ephemeral disk in /etc/fstab. After provisioning this entry is correct and points to "/dev/disk/azure/resource-part1".
