Nope.. depends on what you want to do I spose.. but we have something like:
Export the whole home directory
I tend to nuke most of the auto files in /etc, and just work from
auto.master, but that's because I have sun boxes, which have automount
setup in their NIS+ tables.
/usr/home auto_home -nobrowse
auto.home should have:
That will then mount /usr/home/whatever, assuming the directory
exists on kavanagh...
It's quite nice... (I'm looking at sun stuff here, but linux is the same if
use the autofs modules... there's a line +auto_master, which yanks it in
NIS... if that's there, you may want to comment it out)
