Getting automounter maps from LDAP

AutoFS Client Setup

The Squeeze standard kernel ships with autofs module needed for automounting. Install the autofs5,autofs5-ldap packages and optionally nfs-common.

 $ apt-get install autofs5 autofs-ldap5

Autofs on LDAP

Actually, the autofs ldap backend supports three (3) different schema styles to store its automountmaps in an ldap. You can verify this by reading /etc/default/autofs #common ldap mappings.

To store eg. auto.home maps on LDAP you can use the following format (user and home mapping shown):

dn: uid=auser,ou=People,dc=example,dc=com
uid: auser
uidNumber: 1044
gidNumber: 501
gecos: A. User,,,
homeDirectory: /home/auser
loginShell: /bin/bash

dn: cn=auser,ou=auto.home,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass: automount
cn: auser
automountInformation: -rw,soft,intr,quota       homeserver:/export/home/&

To utilise this from the client you should install the autofs-ldap package, then tell auto.master how to lookup the mappings:

# auto.master file
/home   ldap:ou=auto.home,dc=example,dc=com

Activate ldap lookup for autofs maps in /etc/nsswitch.conf

automount:      files ldap

Configure /etc/default/autofs with proper URI,SEARCHBASE and schema mapping definition. If not using anonymous binds on the ldap you need to edit /etc/autofs_ldap_auth.conf.
