NFS and or autofs 4 hanging
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:33 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
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.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
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
Closed per lack of response. Note that FC2 is not even
supported by Fedora Legacy currently, nor is RH8.
