"/OVS" Filesystem is not Mounted after Rebooting Oracle VM Server

(Doc ID 781659.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 29, 2012

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 2.1 to 2.1.2 [Release OVM21 to OVM212]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
***Checked for relevance on 29-Oct-2012***


The "/OVS" file system cannot be mounted, thus no virtual machines can be managed. 

Attempts to manually restart the ovsrepositories service do not produce any error messages but neither do the attempts work:

# service ovsrepositories status
OVS Storage Repository Mounter Loaded... [ OK ]


Created a custom mount point /OVS_SHARED before attempting to start OracleVM.
