System Administration Guide: Network Services

Avoiding Mount-Point Conflicts

If you have a local disk partition that is mounted on /src and you plan to use the autofs service to mount other source directories, you might encounter a problem. If you specify the mount point /src, the NFS service hides the local partition whenever you try to reach it.

You need to mount the partition in some other location, for example, on /export/src. You then need an entry in /etc/vfstab such as the following:

/dev/dsk/d0t3d0s5 /dev/rdsk/c0t3d0s5 /export/src ufs 3 yes - 

You also need this entry in auto_src:

terra		terra:/export/src 

terra is the name of the computer.
