Does anyone know of any tools to configure NFS directories, or could you pls pass instructions on how to configure a NFS mount point. (What I'm trying to do is Automount my user's home directories, so when the switch between our database/app/nis+ server they will have the same home dir).

On the server that has the users home directory add an entry in the /etc/dfs/dfstab this will share the exported home directory for mounting elsewhere. In the nis+ tables add an entry in the auto_home.org_dir for the user and where the home directory resides. In each of the clients you want to have the /etc/nsswitch.conf to look for nisplus then files. These changes will all take place on the fly EXCEPT the sharing of the directory. That will take place on the next reboot, it'll share the directory and start the NFS server. If you have ANY questions on this feel free to email me at Chrstopher.Marquis@nsc.com
