Autofs problem


Hi Gurus,

In my setup, one of the volume is exported from the storage as nfs. I want this volume to be mounted on /one/two/three directory in my server. I am bit confused about using the sub-directories as mount points in autofs. In my auto.master file, i made the following entry
Quote:
/one yp:auto_files
in the /var/yp/master directory, i have a file named auto_file, and it has the following entry
Quote:
two/three server:/vol/vol1/vol2
So, when i do, cd /one/two/three, it should mount the volume right?

Thanks in advance

Yes that's correct it should mount /one/two/three.

It works fine now. But i didnt understand the way it works. I am not a expert in NIS even in AutoFs. Usually we will have the mount point entries directly in the autofs configuration files, but in my environment it was re-directed to some other file. It confused me.
