Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 598645
/NET ACCESS UNDER AUTOFS5 DOESN'T WORK WITH LARGE EXPORT LIST
Last modified: 2012-06-20 09:29:29 EDT
Description of problem:
-cd to a directory in /net fails with an error similar to this: cd: /net/server1/vol/fs: No such file or directory
-in /var/log/messages : automount: lookup_mount: exports lookup failed for server1
-Verify with showmount -e server1 that the export list can be obtained and is relatively large (eg reproduced with a 38900 bytes long export list)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always with a large export list
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a large export list on a server
2. Try to access an exported fs from that server with /net (cd /net/server/exportedfs)
3. This will fail as described above
cd fails with "No such file or directory"
cd should work
A patch has been published for this problem:
Problem also reproduces on EL5

patch from netapp , applies to EL4U8
I'm wondering why I didn't apply this upstream, perhaps there's
a reason I've since forgotten.
Can you provide a debug log of the problem occurring please.

And the reason would be because, whatever the problem is, this
patch doesn't resolve it. I can't reproduce this problem using
the supplied procedure.
Did you actually try this yourself?
If so, what was the export list on the server?
What is the actual line for /net in the master map?

And where is the debug log showing the problem occurring?
