ns9 automount: >> too many mounted file systems
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:45 EST
Description of problem:
Redhat Fedora Core2 client machine cannot mount more than 803 nfs
mounts via autofs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Try to mount more than 803 automounts on a client-side automount-
configured machine (/home/username - auto_home map).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using autofs, mount more thean 803 mounts (auto_home)
2. /var/log/messages will show many "too many mounted file systems"
Fedora Core 2 client machine can't mount more than 803 NFS automounts
(/home/username - auto_home map)
More than 803 mounts.
Is there a way to increase the number of NFS client-side automounts
to greater than 803 in Fedora Core 2. Is this a configurable option?
Note that this is not an autofs issue, it is an nfs issue. NFS will
use low (reserved) port numbers when making its connections, and there
is a relatively small number of these available. As such, it is
likely that this is the restriction you are running into.
There is no tuning knob to fix this for FC2.
