[rear-users] FUSE sshfs Problem while recovering a Centos7 System

 Indeed I just tested it myself and the fuse module was not 
 automatically loaded.
 Strange. It used to work (albeit some years ago I used this).
 The fuse is listed in /etc/modules, but centos7 has now 
 /etc/modules-load.d/ directory.
 It seems to be changed with the introduction of systemd...;-/

 OK - so we have to foresee this in the prep/rescue phase or load it 
 when requested during
 booting up the rescue image


 which is empty in the rear recovery system.
