Description of problem:
Linux automount do support NIS maps if /etc/auto.master is as follows:
However the 2nd entry can't be imported to automount. It seems
there is one map could be imported for /home.
Please suggest how to import multiple maps.
In our enviroment, we have 6 to 7 groups of NIS maps.
It is tendious to put into one map as there are other UNIX clients.
Please suggest how to put Linux automount to get the multiple groups maps
to be able to feed into automount.
Even I configure the automount as follows:
It is failed for such config.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.create NIS maps auto.home.prod and auto.home.dev on NIS master server.
2.create /etc/auto.master as described above.
Actual Results: Fail on automount map on auto.home.dev
Expected Results: The map for auto.home.dev should be mounted.
The automount in Solaris or AIX can be imported
multiple NIS maps. However it seems Linux doesn't.
It would be better to make it workable for such style
as Solaris/AIX does.
Internal RFE #111304 entered, will be considered for future releases.
Please follow up with this request with the original package maintainer.
