Bug Fix Advisory autofs bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:0506-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-04-20
Last updated on: 2012-04-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated autofs packages that fix one bug are 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:

* A function to check validity of a mount location was meant to check only for a
small subset of map location errors. A recent improvement modification in error
reporting inverted a logic test in this validating function. Consequently, the
scope of the test was widened, which caused automount to report false positive
failures. With this update, the faulty logic test has been corrected and false
positive failures no longer occur. (BZ#810126)

All users of autofs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevant
