Update: See post 2 for a more proper fix
I had some problem booting up my appliances after upgrading to 9.10. The home directories were mounted over NFS at boot time and after the upgrade, it wouldn't mount anymore, unless i mounted it manually after boot.
Message that showed:
Since i am not at all familiar with Upstart, it took some time to figure this out..
init: statd pre-start process (505) terminated with status 1
mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd
It seems like a line is missing from the pre-start script in /etc/init/statd.conf
Before 'status portmap | grep -q start/running || start portmap' add:
Then nfs mounts works at boot again.
exec rpc.statd -L $STATDOPTS
