odd entries in /etc/fstab causing problems

Hello-
I have been having some issues with my HP-UX 11.31 server.

I have tracked it down to two odd entries in /etc/fstab. They are:

-hosts /net autofs ignore,indirect,nosuid,soft,nobrowse,dev=1000002 0 0
/etc/auto.direct /dba/share autofs ignore,direct,dev=1000003 0 0

mount -a gives the following messages:

mount: /etc/auto.direct is an invalid operand
mount: absolute path name is required for -hosts

What are these entries for and how should they look?

Thanks in advance.

This are entries for the automounter daemon.

They should not have to be in the /etc/fstab.

check auto_master and auto.direct files in /etc, but these entries must not be in /etc/fstab.
