"not a directory" when cd to a top level directory in the namespace

Hi,

 

Client: CentOS 5.11

NetApp: ONTAP 9.1RC1

 

I have a Linux client running CentOS 5.11 and I have been able to browse via /net/svm/toplevel_dir/ via automount for some time. However, recently I have been getting 'not a directory' instead when ls or cd any of the directories right below the svm. For example, one of the toplevel directories under the SVM's root is projects:

 

# ls /net/svm/projects/
ls: /net/svm/projects/: Not a directory

 

However, it works fine if:

 

* if  I manually mount svm:/projects on this Linux client

or

* if I browse from another CentOS 5.11 client with same configurations

 

The export of "projects" allows r/w for this and other clients and no root squash.

 

Please let me know if you hav any suggestions on how to fix this.

 

Thanks,
