Bug Fix Advisory autofs bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2010:0791-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2010-10-25
Last updated on: 2010-10-25
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

An updated autofs5 package that fixes a bug is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

Problem Description: The autofs utility controls the operation of the automount
daemon, which automatically mounts, and then unmounts file systems after a
period of inactivity.

This updated package fixes the following bug:

* Previously, Network Information System (NIS) maps failed to work if maps
included both file and NIS maps. This was due to problems related to negative
caching of non-existent map keys. With this update, the negative cache is
corrected and NIS maps work as expected.

All users of the autofs daemon are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which resolves this issue.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
