SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 2


If a entry is added to the /etc/auto.master map and autofs is reloaded (rcautofs reload) it makes the automount daemon not stoppable any more; (rcautofs stop) will fail.

Changes made to the autofs configuration are not being applied.

autofs can not be stopped or only be stopped with a 'kill -9'.


The fix will be available after autofs version 5.0.6-3.4.1 and only for SLES11 SP2 or higher.
