Bug#887861: Enable NetworkManager.wait-online.service on diskful workstations

Package: debian-edu-config
Severity: important


for the last couple of years, we have always been struggling with a race condition during boot up of diskful Skolelinux Workstations. The race was between network coming up and autofs launching.

We thought we had fixed it several times since squeeze. But when hardware changed (mostly when the hardware became faster during boot), the issue turned back on.

The history of getting the issue solved is long. Our recent fix, however, seems to be sustainable:

  systemctl enable NetworkManager-wait-online.service

Once that unit is enabled, systems boot and logon to the system with an LDAP / NFS user is always possible. No failures seen so far. On different hardware variants.

@Wolfgang: Where would be the best place to put the above line during system installation of diskful normal workstations?
