I followed http://www.howtoforge.com/mounting-remote-directories-with-sshfs-on-ubuntu-11.10 To automount sshfs I added this to fstab; [email protected] also tried with; >> Not sure how to implement identif file here but did not make any change. [email protected] And to /etc/fuse.conf; user_allow_other allow_other allow_root and to /etc/odules.conf ipmi_devintf ipmi_si fuse I also created a private/public key pair and transfer the public key to server2 so that not be asked for a password on every mount. And after a reboot, sshfs is mounted fine. But in bootlog I noted; Code: Sat Sep 21 02:18:35 2013: Mounting local filesystems...done. Sat Sep 21 02:18:35 2013: Activating swapfile swap...done. Sat Sep 21 02:18:35 2013: Cleaning up temporary files.... Sat Sep 21 02:18:35 2013: Setting kernel variables ...done. Sat Sep 21 02:18:35 2013: Configuring network interfaces... Sat Sep 21 02:18:35 2013: Waiting for vmbr0 to get ready (MAXWAIT is 2 seconds). Sat Sep 21 02:18:40 2013: read: Connection reset by peer Sat Sep 21 02:18:41 2013: done. Why is that read: Connection reset by peer ? It seems harmless but wondering why it is being logged so.
