fstab-sync wants it's fstab entries marked by a special comment. pamconsole is
crap and you don't need it.. 

``managed'' is what RH uses/used to mark autogenerated entries. The latest mount
upstream version allow for comment=<value> in fstab, which can be used instead
of managed. 

You just need to configure the "storage.policy.default.managed_keyword.primary" key  in the fdi's correctly to use that and fstab-sync will work.
