Tru 64 Unix 5.1 autofs Compatibility with Solaris 10 NFS server option - Help!!

I have a Tru64 Unix server setup with autofs. I am trying to mount, NIS (yp) users home directories from the Solaris 10 NFS server.

           My other autofs (and NIS maps) directory mount points work fine (auto.vol, auto.sysadmin, ect...)

My NIS servers are also Solaris 10.

1) NIS seems to be functioning correctly. my ypwhich and ypcat's work.

2) Autofs seems to work with other autofs'd mount points, just not the users home directories.

 

 

Client.domain.com>ypcat auto.home
nfs-server:/export/home/homedirs/&  <== Concerned if Tru64 NFS on 5.1 recognizes this option in the auto.home

                                                                                  map for NFS users homedirs.

 

Client.domain.com>su - <nis-user>

No directory

 

Client.domain.com>ypcat passwd

<shows up all users in NIS passwd database).

>is there a ypcat option which is needed to see the key values, too?

 

-k will print the keys.
