Description Jay Hilliard 2005-06-29 20:31:57 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050422 Red Hat/1.7.7-1.4.2

Description of problem:
My nis map uses a global

[root@mutton]# ypcat -k auto.facvs
* -vers=3 &:/disk1

If a host has disk1 exported, I can go to /facvs/hostname to see it, which works fine. This new behavior is the problem:

cd /facvs/foo (where foo isn't a valid hostname)

[root@mutton]# cd /facvs/foo
[root@mutton]# cd ..
[root@mutton]# ls -la
total 12
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root    0 Jun 29 13:25 .
drwxr-xr-x  41 root root 4096 Jun 23 16:08 ..
drwxr-xr-x  10 root root 4096 May 13  2004 foo

It's mounted my local /disk1 instead of failing.

[root@mutton]# df  /facvs/foo
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/disk1                 8064304    524248   7130400   7% /facvs/foo
[root@mutton]# mount |grep foo
/disk1 on /facvs/foo type none (rw,bind)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use "* -vers=3 &:/disk1" for automount map
2. give invalid value for &
3. see it ignore & instead of failing and mount the local /disk1 which is exported.

Actual Results:  mounts locally exported /disk1 instead of failing to mount foo:/disk1

Expected Results:  foo is invalid, not mounting...

I'll take a look.

Comment 2 Jeff Moyer 2005-08-01 19:37:46 UTC
Could you please try autofs version 4.1.3-149, found here:

This version should have a fix for the issue you are reporting.


Comment 3 Jay Hilliard 2005-08-17 19:07:56 UTC
Thank you, the change solved the problem.

Comment 6 Jeff Moyer 2005-10-19 18:31:04 UTC
This bug was fixed in the last round of updates.  autofs version 4.1.3-155 has
the fix, so I'm closing the bug.
