I'm running some Oracle v11g databases on Solaris 10, and all of our datafiles are on nfs attached storage.  I would like to know:

Q: Should I use permanently mounted filesystems in /etc/vfstab, or automount filesystems in /etc/auto_direct

Both can be given the same parameters for hard mounting, transfer size, etc. but Oracle don't say one way or the other what is best.  Can anyone provide a white paper that gives some solid advice that's backed up with a rationale as opposed to simply a preference?
