I've been seeing problems with recently rolled out Solaris 2.5.1 NFS
servers and pre-2.5.1 clients. Specifically, the clients experience
sporadic automount timeouts. We haven't been able to reproduce them on
command, but the scenario is as follows:
User logs in on the 2.4 system.
Automounter hangs on a timeout on /home/username.
Log in over the net from another workstation and the mount kicks in.
That's pretty much it. We haven't introduced anything new in the
automounter tables, but I'm already looking into that. This happens
rarely, but it seems like everyone we support at the customer site has
hit it once. Anyone else see this?
