I am not sure if I am posting this in the right forum. My question is OCFS related.

Yesterday I installed OCFS for the first time. One of the steps to get it to work, was to load the ocfs kernel module, with the load_ocfs command.

From my notes:
---------------

Load the ocfs kernel module (this is needed before you can mount OCFS filesystems)

/sbin# ls load*

load_ocfs


Question:
----------

1. Will ocfs start automatically next time I reboot ?

2. Is the loading of the kernel module a once off task, or must it be done everytime the server reboots ?

If you configure OCFS automatically start once server reboot.

I can't understand your question.

For more details check http://oss.oracle.com/projects/ocfs/documentation/

Thank you.

>I can't understand your question.

By this I mean, does load_ocfs get executed everytime the server restarts (everytime ocfs starts), or is this only done at installation time, to configure the kernel ?
