"automount: test mount forbidden or incorrect kernel protocol version" in RHEL 5

I am trying to set up autofs in RHEL 5 and every time I run the "automount" command, I receive this message: "automount: test mount forbidden or incorrect kernel protocol version, kernel protocol version 5.00 or above required."

Does anyone know why this may be occurring?

What do you have in your /etc/fstab ?

One of the reason for this error can be, /tmp directory is not present or it's permission/ownership is wrong.
