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