KBEA-00112 - Disabling lofs

This articles discusses how to disable the loopback filesystem (lofs).


Edit the /opt/ecloud/i686_Linux/bin/runagent script by adding "sandbox havelofs 0" (a zero, not the letter O) after the line starting with "exec".

The beginning of runagent will then look like this:

#!/bin/sh# restart -*-Tcl-*- \

exec /opt/ecloud/i686_Linux/bin/ecagent "$0" "$@"

sandbox havelofs 0

You must then restart the agent. Use /etc/init.d/ecagent restart on the agent machine.

Important : Without lofs support, the agent cannot support autofs5. To use autofs5 after disabling lofs, you must implement one of the strategies described in KBEA-00078 - Configuring Accelerator with autofs5.
