My name is David Harel and I work under Liliana's management. It's me to blame
for the long delay of this SUMMARY.

My original question was:
> Hi
> I have two machines (SunOS 4.1.3) that servers as a home directory servers and
> are clients of home directories as well.
> The /home/MACHINE is a file system exported on those machine
> I tred to use automounter with auto.home map like this:
> * &:/home/&
> The auto.master is like this:
> /home auto.home
> When I start the automounter in this form the local file system /home becomes
> unavailable.
> Since bouth home servers try to do the same bouth
fail to export the
> /home/MACHINE.
> Is there a way to overcome this problem ?

All in all the answers were like this.

I would recommend to mount the home directory partition in a separate path
on your servers; e.g.


and change the auto.home map as follows:

 * &:/export/home/&
