Description Gary 2002-12-20 21:00:06 UTC
Some of the scripts located in periodic/security (and others?) usually
check all the mount points for suid files. However, under certain
conditions, such as dead NFS (over TCP) mounts can cause the find(1) to
hang and become a problem.


Patching some of the find scripts within periodic/ to only do local
mounts and not NFS ones seems to be a fix, and using NFS over UDP is
another option.
How-To-Repeat: Setup an enviorment where a remote NFS mount over TCP, become "dead".
Then run periodic/security/100.chksetuid, and find(1) will hang in
memory. I cannot seem to kill the find process, and a reboot is the only
thing that fixes this.
