Smile Multiple NFS mount using autofs


Hi Guys...

I got questions to ask.
Is it possible to have multiple nfs mount points using autofs on the client machine?
the exports is from the same nfs server. It meant for different users to log in the machine to have their respective home folder mounted. So how do i go about that?

just to clear things up, you are having multiple users on the same workstation and you want to setup different autofs for each user? is that correct?

That should not be to hard as the mount point can be owned by each user.

ex:

/home/user1/mount_point
/home/user2/mount_point
/home/user3/mount_point
etc...

then you can create the autofs for each point as each user will only have access to their mount point you should be good to go.

yes that is exactly what i stated. my example is different mount points all of them. remember the fully qualified path in linux is exactly that. a different location within the system.

If the intended path is the same on the server & client systems (for home dirs this is normal), the you can use this format
Code:
*    server:/export/home/&
