I think that /etc/systemd/system/auto_share.service should contain the following line after Description:

After=NetworkManager-wait-online.service
Before=systemd-user-sessions.service

The rationale for this is that you need to wait for the network to be up and running before attempting an NFS connect from client-side. You also need to perform the NFS mountings before making user sessions available, because the latter may be dependent on the former. For example, my bash profile is stored on a remote server, so I need NFS drives mounted before I even attempt a login. On some systems, maybe the whole home directory is on a different computer (as would be the case for thin clients), meaning that they should definitely be mounted before users can log in.

You need to enable NetworkManager-wait-online.service like so:

# systemctl enable NetworkManager-wait-online

I can't help thinking that this is a bit of a kludge in any event, and is a scenario that should be handled automatically by systemd.


/etc/systemd/system/auto_share.service is a bad place to create the file. Instead, do it in the standard way by creating it as /lib/systemd/system/auto_share.service and re-enabling it using the command

# systemctl reenable auto_share.service

Make iptables.rules syntax more clear

For me the file /etc/iptables/iptables.rules didn't exist so I created it with the lines in Firewall configuration section. After that iptables failed to start, giving syntax errors. After some searching, I added "*nat" at top and "COMMIT" at bottom of the file, and it worked. Will adding this info make it more clear or should we leave it way it is? axper (talk) 18:48, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
