Thanks to everyone's response... I think I finally got her behaving proper
like now :)

Original problem: 

 on server reboot, was trying to mount auto_direct maps from NIS server to
the machines' on share, thus creating a deadlock on the server and forcing
the directory to be inaccessible to anyone.

Thanks to

but Rik had the answer

to overwrite local automaps on any machine, check your /etc/auto_master
file for lines above +auto_master

i only needed to add the path of the local directory with the null

 /do_not_share_path    -null

and restart the automountd daemon

/etc/init.d/autofs start

worked like a charm :)

Thanks again.
