I do not believe so. I believe this bug was specific to 14.10 which is
now out of service. Thanks!

  Ubuntu 14.10 ppc64le not automatically mounting NFS mounts in

Status in mountall package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Problem Description
  It seems the remote mounts in my /etc/fstab file are not being automatically mounted at bootup with ppc64le Ubuntu 14.10. This leads to some of my upstart scripts not running because they require certain mounts being available. I can give access to the machine via SSH key or password. Using mount -a or any other mount command works just fine after bootup. I don't personally notice a problem in logs with mounts.

  The machine is a VM hosted on a Power8 PowerKVM system running:
  # uname -a
  Linux kvm10d724t.rtp.raleigh.ibm.com 3.10.23-1700.pkvm2_1.2.ppc64 #1 SMP Mon Jun 2 20:14:25 CDT 2014 ppc64 ppc64 ppc64 GNU/Linux
  # cat /etc/base-release
  IBM_PowerKVM release 2.1.0 build 18 Service (pkvm2_1)

  VM details:
  # uname -a
  Linux cit607 3.16.0-20-generic #27-Ubuntu SMP Wed Oct 1 17:24:38 UTC 2014 ppc64le ppc64le ppc64le GNU/Linux
  # cat /etc/lsb-release
  DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu Utopic Unicorn (development branch)"

  If I recall correctly, we installed the 141002 daily build of Utopic
  Unicorn (14.10).

  I have implemented a workaround for now. I updated /etc/fstab to use
  IP addresses instead of names, put "mount -a" as the first non-
  commented line in /etc/init.d/mountnfs.sh and updated the crontab to
  run the jobs I had in the upstart configs. This works until the
  problem is fixed.

  ---uname output---
  Linux cit607 3.16.0-20-generic #27-Ubuntu SMP Wed Oct 1 17:24:38 UTC 2014 ppc64le ppc64le ppc64le GNU/Linux
  Machine Type = ppc64le 
  Steps to Reproduce
   Without the workaround implemented and NFS mounts in your /etc/fstab, boot up the machine. It should be evident the mount points aren't there with df -h.

  == Comment: #3 - Breno Henrique Leitao <brenohl at br.ibm.com> -  ==
  I was able to reproduce this problem.
  NFS is not mounted automatically, but it is when you run 'mount -a'. 
  I also toggled ASYNCMOUNTNFS in /etc/defaults/rcS and no luck.
