Autofs service problem
« on: October 19, 2004, 05:47:30 AM »

We have a NIS server from which all the staff members login and get their home directories.

I created a login on the server for member XYZ in /home/staff.
When XYZ logins he gets a mesage "Your home directory /home/staff/XYZ does not appear to exist.Would you like to login through your root directory".

XYZ can login through other machines except for this one.

I checked on the "autofs" service on this machine.It aint picking up any mount points.

What should I do?
I am pretty new to this field.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
