autofs won't mount with path lengths longer that one
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
autofs will not mount directories that have more than one
componet in the path. i.e.
/home works fine
/home/apps will not work.
this will not work on a map on the nis server or with a
local map. I reconfigured the same exact map so the mount
point was a single directory and it worked. Went back and
changed it to a multiple path and it would not work. The
error given was the directory did not exist. Autofs under
other unix systems will mount multiple path entries with no
problems. Thanks for any help. We need this to work for
integration into our corporate environment. Thanks again.
Not exactly following you on this one. Are you saying that you are
trying to mount stuff onto the /home and /homeapps moutn point, or
that you are trying to mount /home and /home/apps on another mount
OK, double checking; you have an automounter running on /mnt,
and you want to mount entries on /mnt/foo/bar, correct?
Apologies for the slow response.
Do the directories actually exist on the machines?
Autofs will not create the directories to satisfy a
multi-level mount - it won't mount on /foo/bar if /foo isn't
