Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 431918
automount does not work on first attempt
Last modified: 2008-02-28 12:52:23 EST
Description of problem:
When accessing nfs automounted directories, the first attempt fails.
But the second attempts works.
For example if I "cd" to an automounted directory it will fail on the first
attempt. But if I try "cd" again, it will work.
FYI - This works on our RedHat 4 U5 boxes for the same nfs filesystem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RedHat AS 5.1
Make sure filesytem is not surrently automounted.
CD into the NFS filesystem. You should get an error.
Try the CD again. It should work.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd /[nfs filesystem]
3. cd /[nfs filesystem] - should work.
valley:/apps/oracle-10.2.0> l /irb/hydtools #
First time the command fails
ls: /irb/hydtools: No such file or directory
valley:/apps/oracle-10.2.0> l /irb/hydtools # 2nd
(or 3rd) time it works

I expect no errors.
This problem was addressed in kernel 2.6.18-53.1.3.el5. The fix should be
present in erratum RHSA-2007-0993. Can you try the newer kernel and report your
reuslts, please? See bz381071 for more information.
Were you able to try the new kernel?
I'm still waiting for testing feedback.
I'm almost certain this issue is a duplicate of 304111. I'm closing this as
such, since I can't seem to get any feedback from the reporter.
