State mount.fstab_present respects mount parameter #57669


Copy link

What does this PR do?

The mount=true parameter to mount a fstab entry after created by mount.fstab_present was in documentation but there isn't code to handle it.

Also, the actual mount=true parameter was being passed to mount.set_filesystems to totally different finality, "mount" is used in AIX /etc/filesystems to mark a filesystem to be mounted by command "mount all"

  1. Changes mount.fstab_present to send fs_mount parameter to set_filesystems.
  2. Changes module mount.mount to allow only one parameter, so it can mount filesystems from fstab.
  3. Finally, added to mount.fstab_present the code to mount a new fstab entry after created.

What issues does this PR fix or reference?

Fixes: #57560

Previous Behavior

The "mount" parameter was passed to mount.set_filesystems on AIX machines marking filesystems to being mounted by "mount all" command and ignored by the others OSs.

New Behavior

The "mount" parameter is used to mount /etc/fstab entries after created by mount.fstab_present status, as indicated in documentation.

Added the "fs_mount" to be used as input to mount.set_filesystems to AIX machines. Both "mount" and "fs_mount" defaults to "True"

- mount.fstab_present have a parameter called "mount" which should
  mount an fstab entry after created.
- But this is passed to set_filesystems, which uses it as a property
  of /etc/filesystems in AIX and indicates that a entry will be
  mounted by "mount all" or "mount -a" commands.
- Added the parameter fs_mount which will be used as input to the
  mount paremeter in mount.set_filesystems module.
- Previously the mount.mount needs at least the device and the mount
  point. Using this approach it doesn't use the /etc/fstab entries.
- Change to needs only the mount point.
- You still can use the device, but now is an optional parameter.
- Added the documented but missing feature to mount a filesystem
  after added it to /etc/fstab or /etc/filesystems when parameter
  "mount" is set to "true".
- When using salt-call to apply the state, when mount.fstab_present
  calls disk.blkid the state execution never ends. Works fine when
  called from salt master.
- Workarounded by calling blkid directly in state.
This reverts commit 09b6840.

Find a better way to fix the problem with salt-call and the
neverending execution
  Still don't know what happens here. But this:

	HAS_HDPARM = salt.utils.path.which("hdparm") is not None
	HAS_IOSTAT = salt.utils.path.which("iostat") is not None



  Wasn't working fine with salt-call. Removed the two HAS_SOMETHING
  lines and changed the others that were referencing this variables to:


  And now the state is working fine called from salt-call and from
  salt master.
- Now when you run mount.fstab_present state in "test" mode
  it will check for "mount" parameter and emmit a message
  if it will or not try to mount the filesystem
- Includes the check for parameter mount=true or mount=false
  in fstab_present tests.
