Description Michael Young 2012-07-18 11:49:07 UTC
I updated to sudo-1.7.2p1-14.el5_8 and then discovered automount wasn't working. On checking the logs I discovered there were problems reading /etc/nsswitch.conf and checking the selinux permissions showed that it now had permissions
If I run /sbin/restorecon /etc/nsswitch.conf it sets the permissions back to
and the automounts work again.
