I am trying to setup autofs so it will automatically mount hdfs. From /etc/fstab if I have:

/fs1/   /hdfs fuse

this works.

Now I am trying to setup /etc/auto.master with this:

hdfs -fstype=fuse,rw,nodev,nonempty,noatime,allow_other :/fs1/ -debug

When I restart autofs I get:

handle_mounts: mount of /fs1/ failed!
