Description Alan Burke 2004-10-07 16:35:13 EDT
Description of problem:
We have got a problem with NFS hanging with automounter mounts.

We're running RH8 2.4.20-20.0 kernel
NFS-utils 1.0.1-2
Autofs4.1.2 (we must have the /net ability) H/W is mixed HP4100's, 
Dell 2650's, Sun V60 and V65's All the machines are in a Sun NIS 
domain with 700 Sun machines that run fine.

The problem is intermittent; any automounter point can hang at any 
For example auto_home may have 1000 entries cd /home/user1 hangs 
and /home/user2 does not on machine Foo, but
/home/user2 is fine on machine Bar.

Once hung we sometimes can get it to release by umount -at nfs others 
time a reboot is the only way to get it to release.

I'm confused... you say you are running "RH8 2.4.20-20.0 kernel"
but the bug is opened up against FC2. Is this an RH8 or 
FC2 issues?
Comment 2 John Thacker 2006-10-25 16:01:00 EDT
Closed per lack of response.  Note that FC2 is not even
supported by Fedora Legacy currently, nor is RH8.
