Sorry the changelog didn't mention that, but the ifdown script is installed to ‘initramfs-tools/scripts/local-bottom’ hence, according to initramfs-tools(8), is not run on NFS mounts. > - activate the new feature by default (because that's probably the > majority use case, root on network is probably not commonly used > in this combination), but provide an option to switch it off I used a config variable for it (‘DROPBEAR_IFDOWN’, default to ‘all’), but I couldn't see any reason not to bring down the network on local mounts so I removed it in the end.
