This all works fine for me as well. Are you aware that some installations of find cache results?

Also, the advice to open a file on the automount system before using opendir/readdir is somewhat flawed: on UNIX, opening a directory is opening a file.

I'm curious: what happens if you manually mount the same volumes to the same paths, thus circumventing automount? If your Perl code succeeds, then it's time to trace and find out the differences. If it fails, you might be dealing with permissions issues (e.g. are you sure your Perl app runs as the same user for whom find works? Have you checked whether perl is setuid as well?).

Unfortunately, this seems somewhat specific to your system, which makes it very hard to debug via a forum.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
