view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Based on advise I received in one of the LinuxQuestions forums a while back I configured autofs on my CentOS 6 workstation in place of a couple of scripts to mount and unmount 5 nfs exported directories on my server. The autofs process seems to work reasonably well with three exceptions. Here are my configuration files: /etc/auto.master Quote: +auto.master /t10 /etc/auto.misc and /etc/auto.misc Quote: data0 -fstype=nfs taylor10:/data0 data1 -fstype=nfs taylor10:/data1 data2 -fstype=nfs t (HowTos)
