Automount Netapp NFS shares on Linux with AUTOFS
We have a NFS share provided via Netapp Filer /vol/Testvol
I want to use autofs to mount that on a Linux System RHEL 3
I have configure the /etc/auto.master like this,
then the /etc/auto.misc
TestVol -fstype=nfs,-rw,nosuid filerID:/vol/Testvol
So as per the config the share should get mounted on /mnt/Testvol right ?
when I restart the autofs service no error comes but, nothing gets mounted
if I give mount then
I see instead of /mnt/TestVol, /mnt is mounted on the Share and
ls /mnt is EMPTY!!, Then I try to create a directory , But I get the permission denied errors ,
Please help me on this
Never had much luck in the auto stuff. I would make the directory manually. Then add a line to fstab to the share but set it to noauto for the mount since networking will not be up before the /etc/fstab is run. Then in the /etc/rc.local add the mount command to manually mount the NFS like a normal mount. Use the full path to the mount command also. Last you may have to set permissions for the user to use.
You might get some help here on autofs. http://nfs.sourceforge.net/
