First line of /etc/auto.master:

Please see: http://people.redhat.com/jmoyer and provide the information
requested under the "Filing bug reports" section.  If the script doesn't get so
far as to start the daemon, then let's see the output from sh -x
/etc/init.d/autofs start.

Comment 2 Thierry Sengstag 2006-08-10 04:45:09 EDT
Dear Jeffrey.
sh -x actually shows that autofs issues the correct automount command.  The
problem seems to be on the nisplus side with the keyserv daemon having unstable
behavior after startup thus making autofs fail later on. Sorry for the trouble.
