Re: blank attribute value.
Thanks Francois, for the answer.
I asked this question in the context that I'm trying to figure out how to
make the OS X automounter understand the ldap schema to mount NFS disks.
Theoretically it's possible, but I haven't sacrificed enough chickens to
the Panther Gods to make it so.
According to most of the websites that I've read, if you want the
automounter to act as the intermediary, you have to have the VFSdir
attribute blank (which maps to the mountDirectory in the apple LDAP
schema), and add the VFSopts attribute value 'net' to the entry, and it
SHOULD work. It works in a netinfo entry, anyway, so I would think that
it would work in an LDAP entry (though it doesn't).
I figured that was the answer, but I wanted to be sure.
