Description of problem:
We export partititions on numerous machines which are mounted via autofs. Occassionally (once every week or two) rpc.mountd crashes and the remote machines can not mount the exported partititon.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create /etc/exports to export partition
2.Mount it via autofs on other machines
3.Wait weeks until mountd crashes
Actual Results: mountd is no longer running and partition cannot be mounted
Expected Results: mountd should not crash
This can be fixed on the machine exporting the partition by issuing the command: service nfs restart
Upon restart, you see: Shutting down NFS mountd [failed]
Everything else says ok.
It appears that nfs-utils-1.0.7-19.FC5 fixes this problem.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Problem no longer exists on FC6 - bug can be closed.
