Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 256781
Program maps never see changes
Last modified: 2008-05-21 10:37:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Program maps in autofs version 5 are never removed from
the internal cache and so program map changes aren't seen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All versions of autofs version 5.
Steps to Reproduce:
Create a program map /etc/auto.prog as:
echo "lookup of \$1" >> /tmp/bug.tmp
Add the line
Only one entry of "lookup of foo" ever gets logged to
The entry should be logged three times unless there is
a timeout mechanism on mount failures in which case only
the number of entries allowed by the timeout of failures
should appear in the file /tmp/bug.tmp.
