open-iscsi will not start at boot if /usr is on a separate mount point

Bug #208441 reported by LinuxBladeGuy on 2008-03-28
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
open-iscsi (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: open-iscsi

The current open-iscsi package puts the iscsid binary into /usr/sbin/

While this works fine for "all in one" partitioned systems, it prevents open-iscsi from running at boot time, and also prevents an iSCSI-mounted /usr partition.

Since /usr/sbin/iscsid does not exist prior to mounting /usr, and since open-iscsi starts before mounting filesystems, the open-iscsi startup script will always exit without bringing up iSCSI at boot time.

The simple fix is to "not put /usr onto a separate file system" but this makes lots of server admins nervous... ;)
