At home I have 1.5 running on a couple of sparcs, which have no
trouble doing automounting from a 1.4.2 i386, nor does a freebsd
I'm still no closer to getting it to work on a sparc64 here at work.
amd on sparc64 does have some issues. I find that it does not
recognize when I change CDROMs. There are probably some latent
LP64BE bugs lying around somewhere. However, I have never had any
problems with /net mounts either from the sparc64 box or the
other way around.
Given the map:
# /home/localhost always points /home/<machine>
referencing /homes/sjg/tmp should create:
/homes/sjg -> /home/callisto/sjg
/home/callisto -> /.amd/callisto/vol/vol2/homes
however what I get is:
ls: /homes/sjg/tmp: Input/output error
the link /homes/sjg -> /home/callisto/sjg is created ok, but nothing
is mounted, nor any link created in /home.
If I reference /host/callisto/vol/vol2/homes/sjg/tmp it works!
ls -ld /host/callisto/vol/vol2/homes/sjg/tmp
drwxrwxrwt 9 sjg software 8192 Jun 7 15:11 /host/callisto/vol/vol2/homes/sjg/tmp/
local bits work fine:
ls -l /home/localhost
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root wheel 6 Jun 8 15:38 /home/localhost@ -> hobbit
I've tried using amd.conf to force use of udp, nfsv2 etc etc, the
result is always the same. ktrace doesn't show anything particularly
Callisto is a netapp btw, but I get the same result with other servers.
The client is an ultra1:
NetBSD hobbit.juniper.net 1.5Q NetBSD 1.5Q (HOBBIT) #2: Mon Jan 29 13:51:31 PST 2001 email@example.com:/u1/obj/sys/arch/sparc64/compile/HOBBIT sparc64
any clues welcome.
First of all, I have no reason to beleive NIS works (or doesn't work
for that matter) so if you're using that you should test it out first.
Other than that, I would recommend trying to recompile the amd binaries,
and maybe the RPC libs and see if that helps any.
