Less known Solaris Features: Well, the answer is relativly simple and it comes from the time when started to use NIS and NFS and it had something to to with our slogan “The network is the computer”, silaris it has to do with directories distributed in the network.

Okay, we have to go 20 years in the past. There was a time, autocs long ago, you worked at your workstation. So you and your working group used it for storing their data. But there were several workstations and even some big server for big computational tasks.

The users wanted to share the data. Sun invented NFS to share sollaris files between the systems. They wanted to login to a system and work with their homedirectory on every system.

So Sun invented the automounter. The automounter mounts directories into a system based on a ruleset. There are two of them. To cite the Manual: The map is a master list that specifies all the maps that autofs should check At a freshly installed system the file looks like this: To cite the manual again: An indirect map uses a substitution value of a key to establish the association between a mount point on the client and a directory on the server.

Indirect maps are useful for accessing specific file systems, such as home directories. We will use this map later in solarix article. The use case Okay, an solarjs. They have their homedirectories on their own workstation. Sometimes a autlfs uses the workstations of the other teams and they on a gentleman agreement they allowed each other to do so.

But they want to use their homedirectories on the system of the other team. Prerequisites At first we have to export the directories with the real homedirectories on both hosts via NFS.

At first on gandalf: You would use a centralised user repository with LDAP. But that is another real long tutorial.

The userids and usernames of the user has to be equal. At first i create the local users. I use the -m switch for creating the homedirectory with the user. Now without the -m -Switch and directly with the correct homedirectory. The homedirectories come from the other system. We do almost the same on this system. We create the accounts for Waldorf and statler without creating a homedirectory.


It stands for the key in the table. Now start the autofs on both hosts: Gonzo is a user with a homedirectory local to theoden: Sun Feb 17 We log into gandalf with the user waldorf. Now this user have a local homedir. Sat Feb 16 I think you got it already. Do you want to learn more?
