Description Bill Peck 2002-07-01 13:03:45 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
I have a server installed with openldap-2.0.23-4 and the startup order is set 
to 39.  This is much too late in the boot sequence since autofs starts at 28. 
This is fine for all the client machines but the server does not load its auto 
mount entries because ldap is not running when autofs starts.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install openldap and autofs
2. configure ldap to serve automount entries for autofs
3. reboot the server machine.  automount will run and complain of no maps.

Actual Results:  autofs doesn't load the servers automount maps.

Expected Results:  ldap should be running and autofs should load the automount 

Additional info:

I have manually changed the boot sequence for openldap to be before autofs and 
have not had any ill effects from this change.

Please consider fixing this in a later release.

This bug is still present in RedHat 8.0.
Comment 2 Stephen Walton 2003-02-14 19:24:43 EST
Sorry, one more comment:  In addition to starting ldap before autofs, ldap needs
to be stopped after autofs, otherwise system shutdown fails.  I changed the
chkconfig line in /etc/rc.d/init.d/ldap to '# chkconfig: 345 27 73' so that it
starts right before autofs and stops right after.
