I currently use automount backed by LDAP. The LDAP server, and NFS mounts are hosted by a CentOS 5 machine, and when being used by other CentOS 5 (or Ubuntu 10.04) machines, everything works perfectly.
However, I'm having problems with Fedora 16. I've installed automount, and it comes up at boot. I can see that it is running in
ps aux as well. When it's running from being launched by the startup scripts, I'm not able to access the NFS mounts in /home or /opt that normally would work.
If I run
service autofs restart, then the mounts that I expect to exist, do exist.
I tend to think that this is occurring because automount is starting up before the network does, but I'm not sure how to verify this. Does anyone have any ideas on how to help with this?
