Description of problem:
In RHEL 7 it was noticed that sysstat was forcing mounts of automounts whenever it ran. This was resolved with BZ1670060:
It seems that this fix was never applied to the RHEL 8 sysstat as I don't see the code change here and I have a customer that has sysstat remounting their autofs.
The upstream code for this was in sysstat v12.5.3 but RHEL 8.3 is on 11.7.3-5 so it looks like we might have missed it. Upstream code:
There was also a BZ around the fix which would lead to a crash due to this fix and that BZ is here:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 8.3 sysstat-11.7.3-5
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up autofs
2. Run sysstat
3. sysstat will force a mount of autofs
sysstat will force a mount of autofs
sysstat skips over autofs mounts
Added regression flag, as customers upgrading to RHEL 8 are seeing this issue re-introduced into their RHEL environments.
