So, I cannot get the auto.direct to function with an otherwise working NIS. I inherited this setup, so I am be unfamiliar with parts of it.
Basically, we have automount maps for /home, /share and “auto direct”.
The home and share works flawlessly, but the auto.direct was filled with mounts that were no longer available (all to a non-existent server.)
I emptied out all the non-existent mounts and added a couple of existing ones, pushed out the map but the mounts won’t work.
When I “ypcat –k auto.direct” on any of the client machines, it shows the correct changes...but when I go to /mountpoint...I get a “/mountpoint: not found” error.
It doesn’t matter if I mkdir a “/mountpoint” dir on the client (Solaris in this case) or not.
It also doesn’t matter if I restart “/etc/init.d/autofs” or “/etc/init.d/nscd” (solaris client)
Here’s what the auto.master looks like:
What am I missing?
