Have you made configuration changes in /etc/auto_* files? For autofs to work you have do these config. and then try automount -v to see whether your req. files system is mounting. You have to restart the services once config changes are made.
mnttab shows file system mounted using /etc/vfstab.
Yes. I restarted/refresh autofs after making a change to auto_* file (adding "llock" option to an existing mount).
I just ran "automount -v" and its output shows that mount point is remounted. However, "mount" output shows
mount_point on NFS_share list_of_options_here on Tue Feb 12 08:47:32 2013 <== which is still 9 hours ago
From where I cannot find the "llock" mount option I added in auto_* file in the "list_of_options_here" above.
If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
What is the effect on cd to you autofs file system? Is it giving error.
Show your auto_* config here.
Refreshing/restarting the automount service does not unmount already-mounted file systems. You need to manually unmount them.
Unmount and re-mount the NFS file system
Restart autofs services
Check whether needed autofs works
Thanks for the replies.
Here is the auto_* file that was changed:
erp01 -rw,bg,vers=3,proto=tcp,hard,intr,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,llock filer:/vol/erp/&
I added the option "llock" and restarted also refreshed autofs service.
As for remounting, I thought I read it some where before that auto-mounted volumes should not be manually unmounted/remounted. Is it true?
Yes, autofs filesystem should not be mounted/uncounted when the services are running.
Have sorted out the issue?
