VMWare,XFS and iSCSI issues!

view story

http://www.unix.com – I have a RHEL6 VM that requires the use of remote storage using iSCSI and XFS for the mount point. Here's the issue: With XFS you can't use the _netdev option for your mount point (pause for network) so my mount point doesn't mount properly because the network isn't up yet. I've moved the init order in rc3.d so the network is up prior to iscsid running however I have application that trys to start before the mount is available and of course the app fails to start etc. Any suggestions on the delay etc. would be helpful!
