Changes to FSTAB mounting, now uses systemd?

so i had a nice fstab which depended on a few things being mounted before the next. I'm using mergerfs and then using bind to make the location a bit easyier to remember. After a new install of proxmox 7 it seems that everything is being mounted at once, which can then cause an issue with my mergerfs and bind not working as the underlieing disks were not mounted

Code:
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
/dev/pve/root / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/pve/swap none swap sw 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-CT1000MX500SSD1_2025E2ADEC1E-part1 /mnt/CT1000 ext4 errors=remount-ro,noatime 0 1
/dev/disk/by-label/SDA /srv/dev-disk-by-label-SDA ext4 defaults,nofail,user_xattr,noexec,usrjquota=aquota.user,grpjquota=aquota.group,jqfmt=vfsv0,acl 0 2
/dev/disk/by-label/SDB /srv/dev-disk-by-label-SDB ext4 defaults,nofail,user_xattr,noexec,usrjquota=aquota.user,grpjquota=aquota.group,jqfmt=vfsv0,acl 0 2

/dev/disk/by-label/SDG /srv/dev-disk-by-label-SDG ext4 defaults,nofail,user_xattr,noexec,usrjquota=aquota.user,grpjquota=aquota.group,jqfmt=vfsv0,acl 0 2
#bind mount points together and export below here
/srv/dev-disk-by-label-SDG:/srv/dev-disk-by-label-SDB:/srv/dev-disk-by-label-SDA:/srv/dev-disk-by-label-SDF /srv/33014de0-1b1b-49f9-8d6a-39bf0c16ea88 fuse.mergerfs defaults,allow_other,direct_io,use_ino,category.create=epmfs,minfreespace=700G 0 0
/srv/33014de0-1b1b-49f9-8d6a-39bf0c16ea88/Share /export/Share none bind,nofail 0 0

I get the following errors from syslog

Code:
Jan 27 10:51:13 pve1 systemd[1]: Mounted /srv/33014de0-1b1b-49f9-8d6a-39bf0c16ea88.

Jan 27 10:51:13 pve1 systemd[1]: Failed to mount /export/Share.

I've read a little bit about "x-systemd.requires=" but it still fails with the same message, when setting on the last entry
https://github.com/systemd/systemd/commit/3519d230c8bafe834b2dac26ace49fcfba139823

Do i need to add each disk as an entry for the fuse.mergerfs mount before, and keep the last mount with it as well ?

yeah, you likely need to encode those dependencies (you can take a look at the generated units with systemctl show ... to see what gets autodetected and what you need to add). man systemd-fstab-generator / man systemd.mount has all the options (but of course - using mount units directly instead of generating them via /etc/fstab is also an option ;))

no, fstab is totally fine to use for things like this - just make sure to give systemd all the info it needs to properly order/.. the mounts :)
