Description Jack Neely 2007-11-29 15:00:58 EST
Description of problem:
I'm using autofs to bind mount directories from AFS to mount points under /ncsu.
 When autofs first mounts a mount point the command that triggers it returns No
such file or directory but the mount is mounted correctly.

$ ls /ncsu/sfcallic
ls: /ncsu/sfcallic: No such file or directory
$ ls /ncsu
$ ls /ncsu/sfcallic
<directory listing>

I have the following map defined:

/ncsu  ldap://ldap.ncsu.edu/nisMapName=auto_ncsu,ou=mounts,dc=ncsu,dc=edu
--timeout=180 --debug

This mostly affects a script that is used to os.stat() a directory under /ncsu
to verify it is a valid "locker" and then run a .environment script in that
locker to set up the environment for the contained application.

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

How reproducible:
Oddly.  It seems to most frequently happen at the console of the machine in
question.  Less so if you are ssh'd into the machine.

syslog from autofs

This contains some logs from autofs with --debug.  I don't see a specific
problem it says its able to mount the directory and this was from an instance
where ls /ncsu/sfcallic returned no such file or directory.
Comment 2 Jack Neely 2007-11-29 15:09:33 EST
This doesn't seem to affect root, just normal users.

I can confirm the behavior with autofs-5.0.1-0.rc2.42.i386.rpm,
autofs-5.0.1-0.rc2.55.i386.rpm, and autofs-5.0.1-0.rc2.43.0.2.i386.rpm
