automountd trying to mount /home/root

I have all of my user accounts and home directories on server S1 which is running as an LDAP server (SLES 11).


I have an HP-UX 11.31 client machine C1 running automounter, such that when I log on, it automounts my user account from S1. This seems to be working OK, however when I log on to the client C1 as root, it seems like it is also trying to automount /home/root from server S1 and it logs the following error to syslog...


Oct 9 13:34:26 <C1> automountd[1167]: <S1 FQDN>/home/root: No such file or directory


Fortunately, it does log in as root and sets PWD to /.


Interesting files...


root:/etc# cat auto_master

/net -hosts -nosuid,soft,nobrowse

/home /etc/auto_home -nosuid,intr,soft,rsize=32768,wsize=32768



root:/etc# cat auto_home

* <S1 FQDN>:/home/&



Can anybody tell me how to stop this error?


Many thanks,

Does /home/root exist on your NFS server?  I assume it's required because of:
