Offline mounted NFS share causes login failure with message "System is booting up. See pam_nologin(8)", and the password is rejected.
Open, Needs More InfoPublic


I have FreeNAS running on a vmware server. The server went down tonight and my mounted NFS share in Solus went down with it

During early troubleshooting, I rebooted my primary desktop (Solus). When I booted back up, I was greeted with an error message on the login screen: "System is booting up. See pam_nologin(8)".

Every attempt to enter my password would fail, claiming my password was wrong, which it wasn't. After about 30 seconds of waiting (presumably when it timed out trying to access my mounted share), the screen turned black like it had just rebooted, and then the login screen would reappear without any errors, and I was able to log in fine.

This happened every time I rebooted Solus while my NAS was offline.. so I think it should be easily reproducible.

Not a major issue, but it shouldn't happen

Is this mount happening from /etc/fstab?

Sorry, I must have missed a notification for his last reply. Yeah, it has always been in fstab and I always reuse the same configuration:    /media/nas      nfs     defaults        0       0

If I remember this weekend, I'll test a reboot while my NAS is down and see if the issue still exists.
