Thread: /home partition from LVM does not mount on boot

  1. #1

    Question /home partition from LVM does not mount on boot

    I have encrypted LVM group with /home /SWAP and / (i.e. root) within it. I'm running OpenSuse 42.2.

    When booting, I enter password to decrypt the partition, but for whatever reason /home does not get mounted (it is in fstab).
    Since /home doesn't get mounted - system doesn't boot and drops to recovery shell.

    In the shell I enter below (in the order provided):
    Code:
    pvscan --cache
    vgchange -ay
    mount -a
    systemctl default
    and system boots. So /home partition within LVM is present and intact, just doesn't get mounted on boot.

    So, does anyone know how to fix this, so that system boots normally?

    Default Re: /home partition from LVM does not mount on boot

    Sometimes that happens to me. And sometimes it doesn't.

    There's an open bug report for this (Bug 989871).

    The bug report does give a workaround (in the initial report). Currently, I am not using the workaround. I'm dealing with it manually when it happens. But then I haven't booted Alpha3 for a while.
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;

    Thank you, the workaround in the bug report did work.
