Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 219434
autofs failed to mount using wildkey and replicated configuration
Last modified: 2007-11-16 20:14:46 EST
Description of problem:
automount fails to mount using a certain automount map.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
configure automount map as following
* 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"
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.
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.
