I have upgraded several of my Dell servers to EL5 from 3 and 4 and am noticing that on the EL5 machines the automounts fail the first time with “so such file or directory” but then they will mount. This is the only change I made to the servers and the network is rock solid GigE to a Netapp with only one switch hop and no routing. These servers and netapp are on a stable sun-based NIS environment and I do not see any other indications of network issues. I have the latest updates a/o a week or so ago. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening now?
