I’ve been working on a pair of Centos servers using GluserFS for a volume that is shared by various other servers. Each time the server reboots, I had to log in and manually start the service. Turns out this is due to the networking having started when the gluster service is. I found this post with the solution:

  • Execute systemctl enable NetworkManager-wait-online
  • Add the following to /lib/systemd/system/crond.service under [Unit]:
    After=syslog.target auditd.service systemd-user-sessions.service time-sync.target network.target mysqld.service

This will allow glusterd to be started after the network has come up.
