autofs problem on SuSe 10

Hi all,
I have configured autofs on my SuSE 10 box. i have two automounts in /etc/auto.master. one is /sun and other /sun1. initially both automounts are mounted and now when i run the autofs status command, i found that only one of my automount point is mounted and other is not.
 # ps -ef | grep auto
root      5266     1  0 Jan02 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/automount --timeout 40 /sun file /etc/auto.sun
How to mount the second also. i tried by running autofs reload and restar, but no use. please suggest on it.

Thanks in advance.

Hi all, I got the solution. I have checked all the mounts and found some of the automounts became stale mounts. Unmounted all the stale mounts and restarted the autofs service. Now it is working.

Thanks all for your time.
