Bug Fix Advisory autofs bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:1318-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-09-20
Last updated on: 2011-09-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

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

The autofs utility controls the operation of the automount daemon. The automount
daemon automatically mounts file systems when you use them, and unmounts them
when they are not busy.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, automount always used the host's IP address instead of
the host names. As a result, users had to look up the host name manually when
encountering mount problems. This update modifies the name list check so that
automount uses now the host name for hosts that have only one IP address.
(BZ#735935)

All autofs users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes
this bug.


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
