autofs from Solaris to RedHat

I've done quite a bit of searching on this for the last couple days. The company I work for currently has a solaris environment with approx 50+ different automounts to each workstation.

We are currently doing some testing with RedHat linux (v7.3) and are running into a little issue with the autofs.

For example:

/apps (on workstation)

auto_master (master map):
/apps auto_apps -grpid,intr,noquota,rw,soft,suid

auto_apps (master map):
pwprod snapdragon:/export/snapdragon1/apps/pwprod
pwtqa aster:/export/aster1/apps/pwtqa
pwtest snapdragon:/export/snapdragon1/apps/pwtest

The automount is working by making /apps available on the workstation. Unfortunately, nothing beyond that is visible unless I cd into the directories below.

I've noticed from other threads that automount doesn't support this type of automounting in RH. Since we create a /apps mount, and then automount different servers as directories underneath that.

I'm curious to see if anyone else has experienced this, and what they did to work around/fix it. I've tried automounting /apps to another directory and symbolic linking it to /apps (as was suggested in another forum); that didn't work.

Any help would be appreciated.
