Re: autofs and OpenLDAP integration


I am currently looking into this also, but have not found the time to
try it.

I have found this information, hope it might be helpful.

The man pages for automount.8 for autofs 3.1.7:  Check your RH7.1, it
should be there. I have the file if you want it.

also Checkout this this link:


If you get anymore info on this, or get it to work, please fill me in.
