Re: how to automount on RedHat



Hi

To make auto mount work

first we have to configure to "/etc/auto.master"

It is like this

/autodir    /etc/auto.misc

This means that the when we start the auto mount daemon it begins to monitor
the directory "/autodir"

second we have to create the directory on which we are going to mount and
that should be under the /autodir directory

third configure the "/etc/auto.misc" like this

/autodir/mountdir                  -rw,soft,intr
nfsserver:/nfsshare

then start the autofs daemon

"service autofs start"

I'm trying to get automounts to work on my RHEL 4 machine. When I start
the autofs service I get these errors. How do I get it so it automounts
my directories from my NIS domain? I don't want to have to put each
mount in the /etc/fstab file if possible. I would like autofs to handle
it.

I have another machine RHEL 3 that automounts work on. Is it reading a
certain file on the machine to get this info? /etc/mtab shows all these
mounts but how does it get the info in there?
