[lustre-discuss] client showing "inactive device" at mount time

I have been seeing this pretty regularly.
I reboot a system and mount a lustre filesystem.
It mounts, but when I do 'lfs df', I see numerous OSTs that are listed as 'inactive device'
If I wait, they all eventually mount. Odd thing is that I always get some that mount fine and others that wait that are both served by the same OSS.

Any insight as to why OSTs can take several minutes to mount on a client? There doesn't seem to be any network issues or congestion.
