Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 448674
X/Open Federated Naming service master map entry should be handled by autofs
Last modified: 2009-01-20 16:45:50 EST
Description of problem:
The xfn map type is not recognized by the autofs master map
parser. When encountered a syntax error is reported instead
of it being ignored.
Since this entry is common in the default installed master
map of other OS automount configurations this should be
handled by autofs.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add master map entry with map type "-xfn"
2. start autofs.
Syntax error is reported and master map is not correctly
Master map entry is correctly read and "not supported"
