Other Errors With Autofs

If the /etc/auto* files have the execute bit set, the automounter tries to execute the maps, which creates messages such as the following:

/etc/auto_home: +auto_home: not found

In this situation, the auto_home file has incorrect permissions. Each entry in the file generates an error message that is similar to this message. The permissions to the file should be reset by typing the following command:

# chmod 644 /etc/auto_home
