currently puppet does always mount a device with -o options. For certain options this is not desired.

e.g. when you have the following manifest:

mount { '/foo':
  options => '-',

The ‘–’ on Solaris indicates that I dont want to mount with special mountoptions and this is a valid option in vfstab. This option is however not valid when running mount. In this case the Solaris mount command will print a warning (something like »unrecognized option, ignoring this option« and just because puppet normally doesnt print any output you dont see this message).

Because the mountprovider works I think this is a low priority issue, but it’ll be more sane if puppet just rejects special options like ‘–’ and ‘defaults’ when running mount -o

Hi Stefan. Thank you for the report with that. The newer mountpoint module work that we’ve been working on will address this.
