            Bug ID: 208071
           Summary: AutoFS seems to disturb NFS server
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.2-RELEASE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern

I'm currently working to move my organization from am-utils to autofs and have
run into a snag.  I've got three non-prod FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE-p13 (as reported
by freebsd-version) machines that export NFS.  If I'm transferring data from a
client and attempt an autofs mount elsewhere on the server, the mount between
the client and server seems to be disturbed in a way that I haven't been able
to define, as there's no in-your-face error.

To recreate:

* Export a file system on the NFS server(nfs3).
* NFS mount the server from a client(nfs3).
* Run an automatic iozone benchmark from the client on the NFS mount. (iozone
* ssh into the server, change directory into an autofs namespace, then do a
directory listing to cajole it into mounting a file system on yet another NFS
* The NFS client running the iozone should now error out with a "Can not open
temporary file iozone.tmp for read, open: Permission denied" or "fsync:
Input/output error"

I can't quite place my finger on it.  It seems as if the act of mounting
another filesystem with AutoFS is disturbing the NFS server in some way.  

This doesn't happen when using a similarly configured am-utils as the
automounter & I'm able to duplicate on all three FreeBSD machines.  Running
automountd in debug mode doesn't seem to report any errors that would lead me
to believe it's a configuration issue. (Though I'm certainly open to that being
a problem!)
