Thread: Autofs issue with home directory on AIX

  1. Autofs issue with home directory on AIX

    I'm having trouble get user's home directories to mount via the
    Automounter on AIX 5.3 NIS client. The directories are exported from a
    Solaris NFS file Server. If I cd to "/home/user" I get a message about
    permission denied. If I cd to /home and do a "ls" the the "user"
    directory shows up. Rest of all the NFS mounts are working fine on the
    same machine. Its some thing wrong with /home automount. NFS server
    side is perfect because /home is fine on rest of all the AIX servers.
    Anybody have same problem on AIX fresh install could help me out.

    Have you tried mounting the directory manually ? does it mount ? that
    would be the first place to start ..
