APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • cifs mount takes more than 5 seconds to complete.
    when used under automount this lead to errors from
    automount like :
    daemon:err|error automountd[417864]: Duplicate request
    This is because automount default mount timeout is 2
    seconds, so as automountd didn't get response in time it
    will queue a second mount request.
    

Local fix

  • when using manual mount no fix is needed.
    when using automount, even though we get the error in
    syslog, the mount will still work.
    If customer wants to avoid syslog entry they might change
    automountd mount timeout value.
    

Problem summary

  • Muonting a cifs filesystem takes more than 5 seconds to
    complete.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Added checks to see to it that once all the necessary
    exchanges are done, no more send/recv is attempted.
