We want to daisy chain 2 NIS maps in the direct map:
automount /- auto.direct
#auto.direct (an NIS map)
#other-map (an NIS map)
Everyone who had done anything similar has used *files*, not
NIS maps. Several pointed out that you must cd /etc before
invoking automount if you don't put full pathnames in the
It may be possible to include an NIS map from a file.
Nobody has gotten two NIS maps to work.
I ended up writing a recursive program which builds the various target
source files on the NIS server by reading and following +includes,
so maintenance of these becomes easier. We have 6 different disk
sub-groups within our NIS domain, so remembering what is common
and what is separate is a chore, which is why NIS is used in
the first place!
