Automount not working on HP-UX 11.11 system

Hi all,

I did not had luck mounting entries through automount. Below are the steps that i followed
for automount when AUTOFS=0/1

-------------------------------------------
# cat /etc/auto_master
/test /etc/auto.test

# cat /etc/auto.test
test -rw,soft,intr hostname:/tmp/auto_mount/
-------------------------------------------

Scenario 1
---------------------------------------------------------------------

# tail /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf
#AUTOMOUNT_OPTIONS= - options to the AutoFS automount command
#AUTOMOUNTD_OPTIONS= - options to the AutoFS automountd daemon
#
#The AUTOMOUNT flag still needs to be set for either the old
#automount or new AutoFS to be started by the nfs.client script.
#
AUTOFS=0
AUTOMOUNT_OPTIONS=""
AUTOMOUNTD_OPTIONS=""
-----------------------------------------

#/sbin/init.d/nfs.client stop
#/sbin/init.d/nfs.client start

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Scenario 2
---------------------------------------------------------------------

# tail /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf
#AUTOMOUNT_OPTIONS= - options to the AutoFS automount command
#AUTOMOUNTD_OPTIONS= - options to the AutoFS automountd daemon
#
#The AUTOMOUNT flag still needs to be set for either the old
#automount or new AutoFS to be started by the nfs.client script.
#
AUTOFS=1
AUTOMOUNT_OPTIONS=""
AUTOMOUNTD_OPTIONS=""
-----------------------------------------

#/sbin/init.d/nfs.client stop
#/sbin/init.d/nfs.client start

For the above entries, i am unable to mount automatically.

Please help me out.

Thanks,
