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

Post by Niklas Edmundsso » Sun, 18 Jul 1999 04:00:00



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...

After applying the maintenance level fix 4.3.0-4.3.2 I noticed, that
autofs did not work any more on my RS6000-250. The additional
fix 4.3.2-4.3.2.0.01 did not fix the problem.
So I used the work-around to set the COMPAT_AUTOMOUNT environment
variable during automout startup to use /usr/sbin/compat_automount.
I don't like this, because the /tmp_mnt and the sym. links are
reappering, but it seems that the autofs implementation on AIX4.3.2
is broken.

You can either use COMPAT_AUTOMOUNT (which is actually the older version
of automount) or you can call IBM and request the efix for APAR IY01103
which is unreleased.
