Description Rik van Riel 2008-01-13 17:52:21 EST
Description of problem:

Automounting a directory sometimes fails.  Unfortunately, autofs in RHEL 5 does
not get anything logged in /var/log/messages so unlike earlier versions of
autofs the problem cannot easily be debugged in RHEL 5.

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


Expected results:

When an error occurs, an error gets logged in /var/log/messages.

To a large extent that is right, autofs doesn't log
mount fails without extra logging enabled.
The problem is that we've received complains about
too much logging in the past, as this can be quite

Having said that though, the logging should be similar
to version 4 so a bit more information would be gretly

Also, please try revision 0.rc2.84 as that is currently
the revision that will be included in 5.2 and there have
been changes to the logging.

A lot has changed since this bug was logged and we have had no
feedback regarding the questions asked above.

If this is actually still a problem please re-open this bug with
more information about the issue.
