Applies to:Solaris Operating System - Version 8.0 to 11.1 [Release 8.0 to 11.0]
OpenSolaris Operating System - Version 2008.05 to 2009.06 [Release 10.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Periodically, usually under increased workload on an NFS server or client, an automounted directory/filesystem might fail to mount, and a message in the form:
pingnfs: <NFS server name>: RPC: Timed out
is logged from the automountd daemon.
Solaris versions earlier than Solaris 10 might report "NFS server not responding" rather than the pingnfs message above.
