Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 484901
autofs does not allow a specific map type to override nsswitch settings
Last modified: 2011-01-25 13:25:32 EST
Description of problem:
Consider the following:
With this configuration, the automount damon will not be started as the script will determine (wrongly) that there are no maps to be read. Instead, the nsswitch utility should treat an absolute path as a file map, no matter what is listed in nsswitch.conf.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHTS test /CoreOS/autofs/bugzillas subtest bz443933 covers this.
