All reminded me that a hierarchical mount is the way to solve this. lofs
was not needed at all. Now I remember.
Responses were all similar to Casper Dik's:
Automount will not look for sub exports, you need to change your auto_home:
harry mysys:/export/home/harry /sys_admin mysys:/export/home/harry/sys_admin
I have problem with automounting that I thought I could solve using the
lofs but have not quite solved it entirely. I think I am missing something
obvious or am attempting something that cannot be done.
My home directory is in /export/home/harry. Under this I have mounted
another partition from a separate disk. It is mounted at
Using auto_home I have the entry
share -F nfs /export/home
share -F nfs /export/home/harry/sys_admin
>From remote systems, I cannot see anything under /home/harry/sys_admin.
So I thought that my solution would be to mount the two directories with
lofs and then export that directory with:
mount -F lofs /export/home/harry /harry
mount -F lofs /export/home/harry/sys_admin /harry/sys_admin
share -F nfs /harry
share -F nfs /harry/sys_admin
I changed the auto_home to
Now, on remote systems I can see full structure under
/net/mysys/harry/sys_admin but not under /home/harry/sys_admin.
I have made sure that the automount had reread its tables by doing a kill
-HUP after umounting all mysys automounts.
What am I missing?
