Hi folks,

Im going to switch over to autofs instead of fstab entries, but Im having problems...

Note: All VMs are running on SLES11SP2.

I have several mounts to be palced unter /opt, but there are also a lot of local folders which have to stay there.
So, as I read in the manuals, I must use direct mounts to keep the local directories under /opt .

So, Im testing under /mnt on my testing vm.

That is, what I configured:
glitst02:~ # cat /etc/auto.master | grep -v \#
/- /etc/auto.etis --timeo=1 --ghost
+auto.master

glitst02:~ # cat /etc/auto.etis | grep -v \#
/mnt/common -fstype=nfs4,ro,soft,bg,intr,suid,dev,exec,auto,nou ser,async,retrans=1,retry=0 glitst01:/opt/common

But when I go to /mnt/common, nothing is in the folder, but it is NOT mounted

/var/log/messages output:
Nov 25 13:36:12 glitst02 automount[3439]: mounted direct on /mnt/common with timeout 600, freq 150 seconds
Nov 25 13:36:12 glitst02 automount[3439]: file map /etc/-fstype=nfs4,ro,soft,bg,intr,suid,dev,exec,auto,nou ser,async,retrans=1,retry=0 not found
Nov 25 13:36:12 glitst02 automount[3439]: lookup(yp): read of map /mnt/common failed: Request arguments bad
Nov 25 13:36:12 glitst02 automount[3439]: mounted indirect on /mnt/common with timeout 600, freq 150 seconds
Nov 25 13:36:12 glitst02 automount[3439]: ghosting enabled

Has anybody an idea what I am doing wrong?

Thanks a lot!

bye
Lars
