Description of problem:
automount fails to mount using a certain automount map.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
configure automount map as following

/words auto.words

* host1:/a/& host1:/b/& host2:/c/& host2:/d/&

say words are classified into seperate location in an alphabetical order

access "/words/bat" or "/words/dog"

Actual results:
mount fails

Expected results:

Additional info:
i have looked into source code.
when some path on a host is failed to mount, 
any trial to mount different path on the same host is ignored.
that, however, should not happen in my configuration.
on solaris and hp-ux system, i captured nfs packets and they try every location 
until they get successful mount.
Comment 1 Jeff Moyer 2007-01-17 15:04:16 EST
Given that this is a deviation from the behaviour under Solaris, this is
certainly a bug.  However, I do not believe this meets the RHEL 3.9 release
criteria.  As such, the issue will not be addressed.  I will open a bugzilla
against RHEL 4 for this issue.
