Description Matt Domsch 2000-12-08 16:25:57 EST
The autofs initscript in /etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs isn't working right on IA-
64.  ypcat auto.master works, and the list of mount points seems to be 
working, but individual automount processes for each entry don't get 
started, therefore automounting stuff like /home straight out of yp 
doesn't work.

Entries placed directly in /etc/auto.master work fine, including:
home  yp:auto.home

It's only the pulling from yp:auto.master that's not working.
Fails on both 11/02 and 12/07 IA-64 releases.

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release

I've verified that an NIS auto.master map works correctly in autofs-3.1.4-3 and
autofs-3.1.4-4 (map entries absent from local /etc/auto.master are picked up
from NIS).  Please reopen this bug if you find that this is not the case.
