Login Prompts Sometimes Appear Before File Systems Are Mounted (5082164)

During system startups, sometimes the login services such as console or ssh logins start before remote file systems and naming services become available. Consequently, the user name might not be recognized or the user's home directory might not be available.

Workaround: If the error occurs, wait for a few seconds and then log in again. Alternatively, log in from a local account to view the system state.
