Details

Updated autofs packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

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

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, when two nearly simultaneous mount requests occurred, NFS mounts
mounted by autofs sometimes failed. This caused a fatal error for the host being
probed and autofs failed the mount attempt with a "mount(nfs): no hosts
available" error message. This update provides a patch which uses numeric
protocol IDs, instead of protoent structures, and NFS mount attempts by autofs
no longer fail in the described scenario. (BZ#921147)

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 to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
