Description of problem:
If an entry in a yp map for autofs is changed, the autofs daemon
refuses to every see it till complete killed and restarted
(efficitvely requiring a reboot of the system). Entries added to
the map are seen. Doing a 'service autofs reload' or sending it
the HUP signal has no effect. Looks like contrary to the man page,
autofs daemon simply ignores all signals and does nothing.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time on an FC2 box. Not a problem on RH9 or RH7.3
Steps to Reproduce:
Have an entry such as
in an YP automount map and start autofs on test host. Then
mount 'foo' through automount, then wait for it to unmount, then
take host1 down, then bring up host2 (maybe same as host1 but you
changed its IP) and change the YP map to be
then try to mount foo again on the test host. It fails. Doing a
reload of autofs on the test host doesn't help. Only rebooting
the test host to complete restart autofs works.
autofs fails to recognize edited map entry. Also does not behave
as per man page for signals sent.
Should see new map entry and be able to mount volume according to
change. Should do what the man pages says when signals are sent.
