Nitro constantly mounting/unmounting filesystem

Hi Group,

Our Nitro Security appliances are filling our logs (RedHat) with mounting/unmount messages.  Is this a configuration error on our Nitro devices?  Has anyone else seen this?

Thanks in advance

Re: Nitro constantly mounting/unmounting filesystem

1. Are you using file shares for any of your data sources or backup or any other reason?

2. Is there anything in /var/log/messages?

Any additional information would help. Thanks.

Re: Nitro constantly mounting/unmounting filesystem

  We are seeing the same thing in two different environments.  Do you have redundant ELM's setup in your env's?

We had a call today with McAfee and mentioned mount/unmount spamming and a support ticket will get created.   It looks related to the rsync_copy process from the redundant elm but need to dig in a bit more.

nothing in the logs so far but /etc/mtab is getting updated at least on the one machine I looked at..  Will keep everyone posted.
