Description Boris Vinarsky 2003-03-25 22:17:53 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
The autofs script removes the map entry if the mount point is a part of another
entry mount point. For instance, from two entries:
/proj        auto.proj
/export/proj auto.export.proj
only /export/proj will be mounted. For the entry /proj automount will not be started

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set in /etc/nsswitch.conf
automount:  files
2.Create /etc/auto.master file with two entries
/proj        auto.proj
/export/proj auto.export.proj
service autofs status

Actual Results:  Configured Mount Points:
/usr/sbin/automount /export/proj yp auto.export.proj

Active Mount Points:

Expected Results: 
Configured Mount Points:
/usr/sbin/automount /export/proj yp auto.export.proj
/usr/sbin/automount /proj yp auto.proj

Active Mount Points:

Additional info:

The reason for this bug is false positive identification of the duplicate entry
in the autofs script. 

As a workaround I removed the test for the duplicates in the function getmounts.
I replaced:
            if [ ! -z "$dir" -a ! -z "$map" \
                        -a x`echo "$map" | cut -c1` != 'x-' \
                        -a "`echo "$knownmaps" | grep $dir/`" = "" ]
            if [ ! -z "$dir" -a ! -z "$map" \
                        -a x`echo "$map" | cut -c1` != 'x-' ]

Again, it is a workaround, not a permanent fix. The test is needed, but should
be done differently, without loss of entries.
