hpux 11.23 panic lo_realvfs

Panic string: lo_realvfs
if you have automountd or autofs turned on and an application or someone tries to access the local machine via /net/HOSTNAME, autofs creates a LOFS mount it since it's a local file sytem.  This rarely cuases problems but there is a known issue with the LOFS code that causes a panic, with Panic string: lo_realvfs in the /etc/shutdownlog
The work-around is to add the -L option to AUTOMOUNTD_OPTIONS in the nfsconf file:
check the options first:
add the -L option:
reboot the box or restart NFS:   (you may only have to restart nfs.client, but I have not tested that)
/sbin/init.d/nfs.client stop
/sbin/init.d/nfs.server stop
/sbin/init.d/nfs.core stop
/sbin/init.d/nfs.core start
/sbin/init.d/nfs.server start
/sbin/init.d/nfs.client start
