HP-UX NIS auto_master with auto_home

Good day,


I'm trying to build auto_master and auto_home map pages. I created auto_home and added it to my NIS now there is auto.home map but the issue is I cannot configure it. I need to configure it only on NIS master. So, I thought about the following:


On NIS Master


/rhome +auto.home -nobrowse



* NISSERVER:/export/home/&


--- but this is not working


the only workaround is :



* NISSERVER:/export/home/&


on Client :



/rhome auto_home -nobrowse





---- but this will make me do it on all UNIX / Linux NIS clients


Is there any way to do it from NIS ??
