Description danny 2003-11-17 11:59:37 EST
Description of problem:
netfs attempts to mount nfs shares whilst nic is still 
autonegotiating port speed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
redhat es 3

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot server
Actual results:
no nfs mounts, error is rpc no route to host

Expected results:
nfs mounts should be mounted 

Additional info:
a sleep in netfs of a couple of seconds fixes this. The netfs init 
script should test the network interface has completed autoneg before 
trying to mount nfs shares, or indeed perform any network dependant 

This happens on all our ES boxes built on standard  HP DL360/DL380 
servers connected to a cisco switch infrastructure.

Static IPs?
Comment 2 danny 2003-11-17 15:08:19 EST
The machine has two static ip address's, 1 bound to each Nic. The 
problem appears to be:

ifconfig plumbs the Nics, this then exits, our portmap is started and 
netfs attempts to mount the nfs share. Unfortunately the nics whilst 
up are still negotiating the connection media, 100 full 100 half 10 
half etc, by the time they have negotiated a media the nfs shares 
have failed to mount.
When the box has finished booting the nics have negotioated a medium. 
meaning I can login and manually mount the share using fstab. ie 
mount /www/.

I believe this is the same basic problem as in 107999; I attached a
workaround there.
