AIX 6.1 automount issues from Linux/Openfiler

view full story

http://www.unix.com – Hello folks... have a problem here hopefully can find some direction with... we have a network using NIS authentication and automount for home dirs and other shared resources. Recently migrated some of our shares off of an EMC Celerra to an Openfiler solution. All of the clients in the NIS domain were perfectly fine with the change, except the AIX. Now, the AIX systems simply don't automount the NFS shares from the Openfiler on demand. I can however mount the NFS shares by hand (as root), but when I do that, it seems that the automountd starts counting down and then unmounts the fs after 10 mi (HowTos)
