Overview

Enable unattended fsck on boot

Description

A simple puppet module to enable automatic / forced / completely unattended fsck on boot up. Typically, this means passing the -y flag to fsck. This module does not cause a fsck to happen on every boot. It only takes affect when a boot time fsck is normally triggered.

On most operating systems, a boot time fsck will only take place when the operating system decides that a filesystem needs to be fscked, typically due to being 'unclean' or a time / mount number limit between checks has been hit. These automatic boot time fscks can halt the boot process asking for administrative interaction to approve making filesystem modifications. This is done because fsck can destroy data. By using this module you are accepting the risk of fsck destroying file system(s) at boot time.

Usage

    include autofsck
