I'm running Centos 5.5 on Computer B. I have the following configs
pub -fstype=nfs computerA:/var/ftp/pub
Now /misc does not exist on computer B. I run service start autofs. It starts up no problem. Yet when I go to /misc, there's nothing in there. I temporarily disabled selinux as well as iptables to help with troubleshooting. Any ideas of what else to check? I mean I can manually mount the share in compouter B no problem.
Auto-mounted directories don't appear until needed. A simple way
for you to deal with this would be to
ln -s /misc/pub /pub
As soon as you 'cd /pub' (or, obviously, /misc/pub), it will get
mounted, and you can use it to your hearts content (if the other
parameters in e.g., the share are correct). And yes, tab-expansion
won't work for this ;}
