Re: [Autofs for Linux and OSX] back-relay ? aliases ?

Well, if your automount-informations are not the same on both OSes then you clearly have to duplicate/arrange them ;).

People here use several programs which save the working directory for each project. That (and the fact that users can log onto whatever worstation they want to) makes me mount all the nfs directories in the same place on each computer.

I ran into the same config issue. I ended up duplicating the maps because I had the macs mount on /home and linux on /users;
otherwise, I would have just renamed the auto maps on either OS to be the same.

I'm configuring Autofs maps via OpenLDAP for some OS X (10.5/6/7) and Linux CentOS (5/6) boxes, and I'm running into a little problem.

OS X needs to have an "automountMapName=auto_master" and "automountMapName=auto_home" located in "cn=automountMap,dc=subnet,dc=example,dc=com"
Linux needs to have an "automountMapName=auto.master" and "automountMapName=auto.home" located wherever I want in "dc=subnet,dc=example,dc=com"

The entries contained in "automountMapName=auto_home" and "automountMapName=auto.home" will be exactly the same ones; SO
what is the best way to implement it without duplicate them ? Using aliases or rwm+relay ?
