ProcedureHow to Use a Public File Handle With Autofs

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Create an entry in the autofs map such as the following:

    /usr/local     -ro,public    bee:/export/share/local

    The public option forces the public handle to be used. If the NFS server does not support a public file handle, the mount fails.
