At least with ZFS this isn’t c orrect. Managing Network File Systems Overview 5. A required mount point can exist only in a file system that cannot be mounted, which auofs the file system cannot be exported. However, the final result changes with the mount point that is specified and the complexity of the maps. However, now the sorting process is more complex. Not only is the best server automatically determined, but if that server becomes solarris, the client automatically uses the next-best server.


An accessible server is not running NFS daemon. Handles client file system requests to access remote file system request. The mount process is generally oslaris same for all mounts. Steps to set up an autofs map that supports different operating systems. Type of file system to be mounted.

This view should be common across all computers, whether client or server. Failover is particularly useful in a large network with many subnets. The author does not allow comments to this entry.


Directs autofs to reference-oriented file systems. A file system mounted with the hard option prints a warning message and continues to try to process the request. Similarly, if the local subnet consists of a varied number of version 2 and version 3 servers, the automounter first looks at the which version represents the highest version on the local subnet.
