setting up automount local to the system


I want to test the autofs is working or not. I dont want to invlove a nfs/autofs server in the testing.

So during the testing my server should act as nfs/autofs server and the same time it will have the sutofs file system mounted here as client.

is that possible? How can i configure that.?

Re: setting up automount local to the system

Considering the availability of virtual machines, if you want to test it, just configure a virtual machine to test it.

On the local host, you could test with a CD/DVD for example:

cat /etc/auto.master
/misc /etc/auto.misc --timeout=60

cat /etc/auto.misc
cd -fstype=iso9660,ro,nosuid,nodev :/dev/cdrom

service autofs start

cd /misc/cd
ls

Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?
