Description Scott Poore 2019-02-13 17:38:33 UTC
Description of problem:

When running ipa-client-automount, I see failures.  In debug mode I see this:

Backing up system configuration file '/etc/sysconfig/nfs'
-> Not backing up - '/etc/sysconfig/nfs' doesn't exist
Raised exception [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/etc/sysconfig/nfs'
Loading StateFile from '/var/lib/ipa-client/sysrestore/sysrestore.state'
Loading StateFile from '/var/lib/ipa-client/sysrestore/sysrestore.state'
IPA server: host-8-252-16.testrelm.test
Location: nis
Installation failed. Rolling back changes.
IPA automount is not configured on this system

If I touch /etc/sysconfig/nfs beforehand, it works.

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

How reproducible:
Always. At least in some test environments.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Setup IPA server and some automount map entries
2.  ipa-client-automount --debug --server=$SERVER --location=$LOCATION -U

Actual results:

Expected results:
Works and sets up client properly.

FYI, I think this is related to the fix in bug #1673685

Comment 2 François Cami 2019-02-18 13:54:31 UTC
We should backup /etc/nfs.conf instead if I remember correctly.

nfs-utils-2.3.3-5.rc2.fc30 ( https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=1208012 ) introduced that change for Fedora:

* Mon Feb 11 2019 Steve Dickson <steved@redhat.com> 2.3.3-5.rc2
 - Do not install /etc/sysconfig/nfs (bz 1668836)
 - Change nfsconvert.sh not to set the immutable bit (bz 1668836)
 - Change nfsconvert.py not to create the new dummy /etc/sysconfig/nfs (bz 1668836)
