To configure automount on an NFS client, you must:
Ensure that the remote directories you wish to mount are listed
in the /etc/exports file on your servers (see
``Exporting and unexporting filesystems''
for more information).
Create at least one automount map in the /etc directory on
Start automount by issuing the automount command, either
on the command line or through an entry in the
/etc/nfs startup script.
We recommend that you use indirect maps whenever possible,
because they can be modified more easily and they create fewer
entries in the mount table (/etc/mnttab).
We also recommend that you create a master map. Doing so
simplifies automount administration and enables automount to start
automatically when your system goes to multiuser mode (provided
there is an entry for the automount daemon in
the /etc/nfs script).
