I also found a another issue the name of the init script is to long see:

root at myserver:~# /etc/init.d/opendnssec-enforcer restart
 * Restarting OpenDNSSEC Enforcer opendnssec-enforcer                                                                                                                                                                                        start-stop-daemon: warning: this system is not able to track process names
longer than 15 characters, please use --exec instead of --name.

would be an idea to rename te init script ods-enforcer en ods-signer just like the commands ?

networks, mounts are ok, but how you are going to make sure that a remote MySQL server is available from within a local init system?

With remote MySQL you cannot be even sure that MySQL is available for a full run time of OpenDNSSEC, as there might be network breakages, database might disconnect you due to capacity reasons, etc., the server might be located after a HA proxy not handling TCP connection handovers.

So any software that rely on another networking server must be able to cope with unavailability of the networked service.

E.g. instead of failing to start when MySQL is not available, it should refuse to run the first operation in the queue until it is connected, etc.
