Summary0013575: autofs breaks stunnel mounted NFSv4 shares
DescriptionThe autofs package that was released with CentOS 6.8 (autofs-5.0.5-122) worked properly over an stunnel connection.

The release shipped with CentOS 6.9 (5.0.5-132) prevents any connection from happening to the local stunnel process and breaks mounts to remote systems over stunnel connections.
Steps To Reproduce1) Set up a server/client stunnel connection targeted to port 2049
2) Set up an NFSv4 mount on the NFS server that binds to stunnel
3) Set up an NFSv4 automount on the NFS client that binds to stunnel
4) Attempt to mount the autofs location via navigating to the directory

A sample working environment with a failing test can be generated by doing the following:

1) Set up RVM ( and install Ruby version 2.1.9 and bundler
2) Run `git clone
3) Run 'cd pupmod-simp-simp_nfs'
4) Run 'bundle update'
5) Ensure that VirtualBox is installed and properly functioning and has space to spawn around 4 systems
6) Run 'BEAKER_destroy=onpass bundle exec rake beaker:suites[stunnel]'
7) On failure, navigate to './vagrant/beaker_vagrant_files/default.yml'
8) Run 'vagrant ssh client6 -- -l root' in two different windows
9) Run 'service autofs stop'
10) Run 'automount -fvd'
11) Run 'cd /home/test.user' in the other window and watch the output of 'automount'
Additional InformationThe following error message is output by 'automount -fvd':

Edit to the steps above:

6) Run 'BEAKER_destroy=onpass bundle exec rake beaker:suites[stunnel]'

Should be:

6) Run 'BEAKER_destroy=onpass bundle exec rake beaker:suites'
