[OpenAFS] New to openafs-1.4 and vanishing symlinks
Tue, 20 Dec 2005 19:09:38 +0100 (CET)
I installed a long awaited RPM openafs distro on a 64 bit fedora core 4
client. The server is still running 1.2.13 on a fedora core 1.
Works mostly well (krb5/aklog/afs access). Just one problem I do not how
The cell name is (say) abc.com, and I used to put a symbolic link abc ->
abc.com in /afs:
/afs/abc -> /afs/abc.com
Bad luck, the abc symbolic link does not show up any more on the latest
fedora core 4 / openafs 1.4.0 client. I tried to replace the abc symlink
with an actual "fs mkmount" mountpoint abc -> root.cell. Nothing is
showing up, as if the new client was completely ignoring was is lying in
root.afs? Did something change in the classical directory and volume
hierarchy to explain this?
The hierarchy I am used to is:
/afs -> root.afs volume
in root.afs, I have a RO mount point abc.com to root.cell, and either a
symbolic link abc to abc.com or a RO mount point abc to root.cell. In
either case, the abc link/mountpoint is invisible in the 1.4 client.
I would like to keep the /afs/abc paths running, as they are used in the
standard paths for user home directories and plenty of other stuff.
