Trying autofs. No luck getting it to work so far. Looking at the man
page and google, but not sure what I'm doing wrong.

My auto.master has:
# Sample auto.master file
# This is an automounter map and it has the following format
# key [ -mount-options-separated-by-comma ] location
# For details of the format look at autofs(5).
#/misc /etc/auto.misc
# NOTE: mounts done from a hosts map will be mounted with the
# "nosuid" and "nodev" options unless the "suid" and "dev"
# options are explicitly given.
#/net -hosts
# Include central master map if it can be found using
# nsswitch sources.
# Note that if there are entries for /net or /misc (as
# above) in the included master map any keys that are the
# same will not be seen as the first read key seen takes
# precedence.
/home/user/shares auto.shares

I created an executable /etc/auto.shares and it has:
storage rw
mythtv rw

Start the autofs service.

In /var/log/messages I get nothing, but it doesn't automount either.

Any ideas?


Do you have a direcotry /home/users/shares?

storage rw
mythtv rw

Should be


I suggest you change the following line

#/net -hosts

/net /etc/

If it is properly configured then you should be able to do the following:

ls /net/

It should list the shared directory.
