Autofs


I finally have autofs kinda working, but have one fundamental problem, the directories don't show up unless you do an ls on it.

My config files are auto.master:
/mnt/nfs /etc/auto.nfs --timeout=60

my auto.nfs:
* --fstype=nfs servername:/export/group

I have three folders within this share and cannot access them through a graphical browser unless I specify the name of the folder in the address bar. Is there a way to get them to show up without having to do this

Not everyone who uses the network knows what the folders are called, so would like to get this sorted out.

Thanks,
Tefal

Create the directories, while they not there yet.

Cheers,

The folders already exist, but you cannot view them and open them unless you specify them by name first in the address bar.

NFS is not automatically browsable but once it's mounted into the filesystem it will show up as part of the system as normal.

make sure that you dont have the -nobrowse option set, which is might be by default for large fs's.

Can you do this:

Code:
ls -al /export
as root

and post it here?

Cheers,

Jeroen
