autofs automount REDHAT6

Post by paul » Wed, 01 Mar 2000 04:00:00



Hi,

I'm using Red Hat 6, kernel 2.2.5-15 and kernel 2.2.12, and autofs don't
work. I already read the LG#24 & LG#42, the HowTos, and man's pages.

Where are more info about autofs.

Syslog says something like 'cannot connect to socket...' (I'm not remenber
well).

There are not other errors messages. I'm trying to mount a iso9660 cdrom
and a floppy drive.

Thanks

We are running RH6.1, 6.0, and some 5.2, and autofs works.
But I seem to remember we may have had some mounting problems
earlier.  There were some changes in how nfs mounting worked.
But everything seems to be okay with the latest knfsd and
knfsd-clients packages.  There was also a minor problem with
the network not being started properly or some such thing
on booting which was fixed by getting the latest initscripts
package.

1. BUG?: bos.net.nfs.client.4.3.2.7 breaks automount/autofs

While doing a fresh install of AIX 4.3.2 on an 43P (332MHz 604e) with
the latest set of available patches from fixdist we noticed that the
automounter (ie. AutoFS) fails to mount directories sometimes.

Since /usr/sbin/automount belongs to bos.net.nfs.client and we don't
have any problems with a machine that has bos.net.nfs.client.4.3.2.5
installed we believe that the problem is in the latest available version
of bos.net.nfs.client which is 4.3.2.7 ...

Specifically, 4.3.2.6 has problems mounting SunOS4-boxes and in 4.3.2.7
we are having random problems mounting Solaris2.6 and other OS's...

Are there others out there that have this problem (there should be ... ;)

Is it a reported bug (I know there should be some fancy www-based
search-thingie somewhere ;) or not ??

/Nikke - who doesn't like patches that breaks things...
