Description Ed Friedman 2005-10-26 15:15:45 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Netscape/7.1

Description of problem:
We export partititions on numerous machines which are mounted via autofs.  Occassionally (once every week or two) rpc.mountd crashes and the remote machines can not mount the exported partititon.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
nfs-utils-1.0.7-12.FC4

How reproducible:
Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create /etc/exports to export partition
2.Mount it via autofs on other machines
3.Wait weeks until mountd crashes
  

Actual Results:  mountd is no longer running and partition cannot be mounted

Expected Results:  mountd should not crash

Additional info:

This can be fixed on the machine exporting the partition by issuing the command:  service nfs restart
Upon restart, you see:  Shutting down NFS mountd   [failed]
Everything else says ok.

It appears that nfs-utils-1.0.7-19.FC5 fixes this problem.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Thanks.
