Do I am wrong or I need to put nothing in the /etc/fstab of a vserver?
For the moment I have:
/dev/md0 / ext3 errors=remount-ro 0 1
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
And I get some troubles with the / mount point when shutting down the
vserver. I put the /proc because at I was enable to run top from within
the vserver at first.
Can a vserver be happy with nothing in the fstab? Another thing, I have
mdadm (software raid if I am not wrong), snmpd (is it only usefull for
MRTG?) and ntpd running within the vserver. For ntpd and snmpd I am pretty
sure I can remove them, but mdadm I am not sure.
Little note for Linux newbies like me who want to rsync a normal server as
a vserver on another machine:
Do not ever sync the /proc mount point. It is created automatically. I you
do synchronized it, you are ready for a nice crash party as it will be
mounted automatically and will contain wrong data.
I put the note here, because I am always going through the archives of the
mailing list when I have some troubles. So maybe I am not the only one
