Re: NIS Automount Issue

On your NIS server, try doing a 'ypcat auto.home' to see if it sees the changes. If it does, log onto your NIS client machine, and execute the 'automount' command (with no parameters) as root.

 

Hope that helps,

Ypcat auto.home is showing the list but its not updating if i make any modification in /etc/auto.home file.

I have even executed ypmake command to rebuild the maps but its not updating

Re: NIS Automount Issue

Hi Sridhar,

 

When I make updates to my NIS automount file (auto_home), I execute the following commands on the NIS server (as root)...

 

# cd /var/yp                                                # Important to do this

# /usr/ccs/bin/make auto.home

 

Then on all NIS clients (as root)...

# automount

 

Hope that helps.

 

Regards,
