2.1i COREGEN, SOLARIS 2.6: Project Choose Browser takes several minutes to browse to /home and other mount points on Solaris 2.6 (REL)


Keywords: browse, coregen, mount, solaris, 2.6, project

Urgency: hot

General Description:
CORE Generator Project Choose Browser Takes several minutes to browse
to /home and other mount points on Solaris 2.6

This problem has been seen in Solaris 2.6 systems with multiple automounts and
has been observed specifically with the Bristol Windows type browser used in
the CORE Generator GUI.

When the operating system process monitor is checked, very high CPU usage, load
and packet transmission rates are observed.


The problem is with mount points mounted in "browse" mode on Solaris 2.6.

In Solaris 2.6, an enhancement was added that made it possible to view
the entire contents of the automated filesystem without requiring that
the filesystem to already be mounted. This default, enhanced mount mode
is called "browse" mode.

Browse mode can be disabled by mounting the mount points in your
system with a "-nobrowse" option. This setting can be added to
the Solaris 2.6 auto_master file for your host machine.
The change may have to be made by your system administrator.

For more details on how to change the mount settings, please refer to
the Solaris 2.6 Release Notes, p.15, under "autofs Administration News".
