Description Richard Felkins 2001-06-13 17:31:59 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.7 [en] (X11; U; SunOS 5.8 sun4u)

Description of problem:
I did not get auto.direct maps through nis (yp) and switched
over to a /etc/auto.direct file copied directly from a Sun
Server.  The results are the same, snooping showed now NFS
requests other than auto.home, using standard NFS mount
requests work okay.  The mount points exist as /groups/plasma
and /groups/geop.

/groups/geop    ent450:/export/data/groups/geop
/groups/plasma  ent450:/export/data2/groups/plasma

I have tried the old style syntax used in 'amd' also.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.auto.master has

# $Id: auto.master,v 1.2 1997/10/06 21:52:03 hpa Exp $
# Sample auto.master file
# Format of this file:
# mountpoint map options
# For details of the format look at autofs(8).

#/misc  /etc/auto.misc  --timeout=60

/home   auto.home
/-      auto.direct

<richardf@linseed> 3% /sbin/service autofs status
Configured Mount Points:
/usr/sbin/automount /home yp auto.home  
/usr/sbin/automount /- file /etc/auto.direct  

Active Mount Points:
/usr/sbin/automount /home yp auto.home
/usr/sbin/automount /- file /etc/auto.direct


Actual Results:  <richardf@linseed> 4% cd /groups/plasma
linseed:/groups/plasma:% ls -la
total 8
drwxrwxr-x    2 root     root         4096 Jun 13 09:06 ./
drwxr-xr-x    6 root     root         4096 Jun 13 09:06 ../

Expected Results:  The automounter is silent an unyielding.

Autofs 3 does not support direct mounts.  It is on the to-do list, possibly for
autofs 5.
