Updated the Ubuntu upstart jobs for glusterd in extras/Ubuntu.
Using upstart jobs, instead of an initscript, solves Bug 765014. See also: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/glusterfs/+bug/876648 The new upstart jobs split the work of starting glusterd & mounting glusterfs volumes into two parts: a glusterd service runner and a glusterfs volume moung blocker which waits for the service runner. This is the method preferred by Ubuntu developers to block a mounting event until a required service is available. These changes will be included in the Ubuntu glusterfs-server package starting with release 12.04, Precise Pangolin. Tested on Ubuntu 12.04 Change-Id: I9bb4e8cb05a1da0997c23f2ef7fea8737f6a2eb9 BUG: 765014 Signed-off-by: Louis Zuckerman <firstname.lastname@example.org> Reviewed-on: http://review.gluster.com/2727 Tested-by: Gluster Build System <email@example.com> Reviewed-by: Amar Tumballi <firstname.lastname@example.org> Reviewed-by: Jeff Darcy <email@example.com> Reviewed-by: Anand Avati <firstname.lastname@example.org>

-Bug 3282 - Mounting from localhost in fstab fails at boot on ubuntu
+Bug 765014 - Mounting from localhost in fstab fails at boot on ubuntu
Ubuntu uses upstart instead of init to bootstrap the system and it has a unique
-way of handling fstab, using a program called mountall(8). As a result,
-glusterfs mounts in fstab are tried before the glusterd service is running. In
-the case where the client is also a server and the volume is mounted from
-localhost, the mount fails at boot time. An upstart job for glusterd is needed
-to correct this.
+way of handling fstab, using a program called mountall(8). As a result of using
+a debian initscript to start glusterd, glusterfs mounts in fstab are tried before
+the glusterd service is running. In the case where the client is also a server
+and the volume is mounted from localhost, the mount fails at boot time. To
+correct this we need to launch glusterd using upstart and block the glusterfs
+mounting event until glusterd is started.
The glusterd.conf file contains the necessary configuration for upstart to
manage the glusterd service. It should be placed in /etc/init/glusterd.conf
on Ubuntu systems, and then the old initscript /etc/init.d/glusterd can be
+removed. An additional upstart job, mounting-glusterfs.conf, is also required
+to block mounting glusterfs volumes until the glusterd service is available.
+Both of these upstart jobs need to be placed in /etc/init to resolve the issue.
-It can also be added to Ubuntu deb packages by placing it in debian/upstart
-inside the source package (or debian/glusterd.upstart if the source package
-builds multiple binary packages.)
+Starting with Ubuntu 12.04, Precise Pangolin, these upstart jobs will be
+included with the glusterfs-server package in the Ubuntu repository.
-This affects all versions of glusterfs on the ubuntu platform.
