Well, here it is.  Thanks to all who responded.  What I did was nothing
more that restarting the autofs service.  That did the trick.


Original post:

Hey list,

We hit a snag with a recent patch cluster upgrade on our Solaris 8
boxes.  My co-worker did some research and found that several commands
issued with the /xfn directory will hang.  He found some old posts that
recommend removing the entry out of the /etc/auto_master file or
pointing it to -null will fix the problem if we are not using the Sun
Federated Naming System.  Our question is this:
     Is there a service we can restart to re-read the new config, or do
we need to do a full re-boot?




Just type in:


That's it!

You can either stop & restart the automounter using /etc/rc2.d/S74autofs
you can run the automount command.

                 Chocolate is *not* a substitute for sleep
sh /etc/rc2.d/S74autofs stop
sh /etc/rc2.d/S74autofs start

You can try automount -v and see if that takes care of it.  The next
thing to try is /etc/init.d/autofs stop and then /etc/init.d/autofs
start. If that doesn't take, then you'll need to reboot.

Unix like TeePee no windows, no gates, Apache inside.
not sure if anyone already replied to this, but i ran into the same
earlier on one of my machines.  doing a "umount /xfn" took care of it
for me
(assuming you are not running the auto fs daemon).  hope that helps...
