Configuring LDAP Authentication for Debian

AutoFS Client Setup

You need to have ["AUTOFS4"] compiled as a module in your kernel config (see /usr/share/doc/autofs/README.Debian):

 $ grep AUTOFS /boot/config-`uname -r`

Install the autofs and nfs-common packages.

 $ apt-get install nfs-common autofs 
 $ vim /etc/auto.master

/var/autofs/net is very handy to get rid of host:/path lines in /etc/fstab. Make sure what your NFS server is working, then just do :

 $ cd /var/autofs/net/yourserver/yourexport
