With autofs, browsing the top mount folder mounts ALL entries in auto.misc

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I have this line in auto.master : /- /etc/auto.misc --timeout=30 and in auto.misc : /media/autofs/winlinux -fstype=auto :/dev/sdb1 /media/autofs/BACKUP -fstype=auto :/dev/sdc1 /media/autofs/NAS -fstype=cifs,user=xxxxxxxx,password=xxxxxxxxxx,iocharset=utf8,workgroup=workgroup :// Each time I browse /media/autofs, ALL entries in auto.misc are mounted, whereas I only want to enter in /media/autofs/NAS. To avoid this, I add a specific top level folder for each entry : /media/autofs.winlinux/winlinux -fstype=auto :/dev/sdb1 /media/autofs. (HowTos)
