I have an NFS/NIS based file system. NFS and NIS servers are on different physical machines. When I log onto the machine with the NIS server (via
ssh) sometimes my home directory automounts (as it should) but sometimes it doesn't.
Inconsistency scares me. The home directory always mounts on workstations and on our supercomputer cluster as far as I can tell.
Is this indicative of network issues, or hardware issues?
