On the file server, I have one 800GB /home mount that is where all the home directories are mounted.
Under that mount, I have group folder, and I'd like to NFS share out that group folder to users with the proper GUIDs...
When I start the client's autofs, I don't get any errors... but I also can't see the folders in the group mount.
What am I doing wrong?
Moreover, what is the proper procedure for sharing group folders?
FYI: I've setup the /home/group folder with an overall GUID "GroupUsers" and then set up easy special user group as "Group1" "Group2" etc... All users that should have group access belong to the "GroupUsers" group, and then also ahve specific other groups as well.
