Automount/autofs

From DISI
Jump to: navigation, search

I am testing automount/autofs on backstreetboys.desktop.ucsf.bkslab.org. /etc/fstab causes us problems when one of the NFS servers are down. I'd like to move us to autofs mounts for future machines. There have been autofs issues in the past. For now, I'll use this on the desktops and see how they fare.
