Bug #1670

Updated by Luke Kanies over 4 years ago

Currently there is no way to leave the previous value of the fs dump and pass fields in /etc/fstab at their original pre-Puppet values. Both the dump and pass parameters default to 0 and obliterate any previous values.

Obviously some value is needed for completely new entries in the file, but for pre-existing entries, it would be nice if the previous values were preserved.
