    nested automount
    Hi,

    I have in my /etc/auto_home the following:

    +auto_home
    #
    joost onix:/export/home/joost

    That's working fine.

    Now I would like to have my photo library in /home/joost/Pictures on another share. After reading auto_master(5), I changed auto_home to

    +auto_home
    #
    joost \
    / onix:/export/home/joost \
    /Pictures onix:/export/home/joost/Pictures



    Apparantly that doesn't work.

    Does anyone have a similar working configuration?

    Thanks!

    Joost

    it been a while since I played with automount. have you tried the following:

    +auto_home
    #
    joost onix:/export/home/joost \
    /Pictures onix:/export/home/joost/Picture

    Cool
    What you have entered and what I have entered is the same thing. The back slant symbol for continuation of the previous line.

    So what you really have is the following:

    joost onix:/export/home/joost /Pictures onix:/export/home/joost/Pictures
