Description Elliot Peele 2004-08-02 20:30:05 UTC

Description of problem:
Autofs doesn't seem to use the correct name when mounting directories
from hesiod. It uses the hesiod key instead of the directory that
hesiod points at.


physics% hes netcdftools
    FILSYS: AFS /afs/eos/service/pams/physics/astro/netcdf w /ncsu/netcdf
physics% cd /ncsu/netcdf
/ncsu/netcdf: No such file or directory.
physics% cd /ncsu/netcdftools
physics% pwd

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure autofs to work with hesiod
2. have a mount point that has a different name than the hesiod key
3. try to mount it

Actual Results:  uses hesiod name to mount

Expected Results:  should use name in hesiod record

Additional info:

This bug also appears in autofs-4.1.2-2 on both RHEL3 and FC1.

First, sorry it took me so long to get to this.

I'm not sure what you expect for behaviour.  If you cd to /ncsu/netcdf, how is
the automounter supposed to find this directory in hesiod?  Why would you
configure things in such a way?

Note that I've never worked in an environment that used HESIOD, so if there are
some common conventions, I am ignorant of them.  In other words, you'll have to
be thorough in your explanations.  ;)


Comment 2 Jeff Moyer 2006-08-08 19:47:58 UTC
Given that there's been no response to this issue, I'm closing it as notabug.  I
believe the automounter is functioning as designed, here.
