Automount problems since upgrade to ML10 and ML11

Automount problems since upgrade to ML10 and ML11

Post by Stefaan A Eeckel » Mon, 24 Feb 2003 08:09:14



Hi group,

After upgrading to AIX 4.3.3 ML10, my automounts stopped working.
Upgrading to ML11 doesn't help. I've reduced the automount config
to the absolute minimum:

# cat /etc/auto_master
/home           /etc/auto_home          -nobrowse
# cat /etc/auto_home
sae                             groggy.ecc.lu:/export/home/&
#

But still I get:

$ cd /home/sae
ksh: /home/sae: 0403-036 The specified directory is not valid.

Automounting the directory goes without problems on HP-UX,
Solaris and Linux, and it used to work before I applied ML10.

I'd appreciate your insights. Thanks a lot.

Automounter is a "problematic" subsystem always. You can try the
following suggestions:
1. Check that there is no directory or a filesystem called /home. If
there, try to remove it, stop automouter and run it again.

2. You can use the compat version of automouner:
export COMPAT_AUTOMOUNT=1
/usr/sbin/automount -D OSV=AIX -f /etc/auto_master. This is a more
reliable version of automounter.

BTW: Can you ping groggy.ecc.lu from the AIX box?

Good luck..

That's an understatement. On Solaris and HP-UX it works
without any problems, and even with Linux I never had such
behaviour. I wonder why ML10 had this effect.

I tried that, but it doesn't work.

This _does_ work! Marvellous. You're a star!

Thanks an awful lot. I spent a couple of hours googling for
"AIX automount" but I didn't find the "COMPAT_AUTOMOUNT"
environment variable.

Thanks again.
