Autofs notes

Usage

Some can always start Autofs using the init scripts. In a Debian system:

# /etc/init.d/autofs

But, sometimes it is a good idea to execute it standalone, specially when debugging. When this happen, -f (foreground) and -d (debug) are always useful:

# automount -d -f

With the -f and -d flags you can see maps read from the configuration files and check how it is mounting NFS filesystems.
