Hint of the day: @digitalocean and not mounting sshfs at boot

In /etc/fstab, be sure to add the option:

_netdev

As it will attempt to start the network mounted sshfs before networking has been started.

The entire line looks like this:

user@host:/some/dir /local/path fuse.sshfs defaults,idmap=user,_netdev  0 0

From the man pages:

_netdev

The filesystem resides on a device that requires network access (used to prevent the system from attempting to mount these filesystems until the network has been enabled on the system).
