http://www.linuxquestions.org – I am banging my head against the wall on this one. I am running a debian squeeze server, and have autofs 5.0.4 installed. One of my scripts (autofs executable files) is trying to mount some of my LAN hosts. The host mount fine at start, but when unmounted automatically, it will not mount again. (At least unless I wait for 2-3 minutes). The problem is, maybe, that I get these messages in the log: add_host_addrs: hostname lookup failed: Name or service not known mount(nfs): no hosts available failed to mount {myshare} If I wait a couple of minutes, the share is mounting fine, but that is n (HowTos)
