Description Michael McConachie 2000-10-13 21:10:49 EDT
strace shows that when ftp is started that it opens /etc/fstab then cds to
every entry including (/mnt/cdrom and /mnt/floppy).  This in turn causes
autofs to mount any nfsmounts in /mnt.

This happens for both anonymous users and regular users every time there is
a login.

I'll accept that there's a reason for ftp to be doing this, but we're
mighty curious about the reason.  :)

Um, perhaps you mean wu-ftpd. Changing component...
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-10-16 05:21:44 EDT
This most definitely doesn't happen here.
Which type(s) of authentication are you using? Are your users' home directories on NFS?
Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-10-24 06:45:57 EDT
Closing due to lack of user input
Comment 4 Isaiah Weiner 2000-12-13 17:38:14 EST
This should be reopened.  It's irritating to wait for CD, hard disk, and network
mounts to initialize.  A demonstration of the bug can definitely be arranged.

Must be something else he's doing.

Non-duplicatable.  Close this ticket.
