ProcedureHow to Support Incompatible Client Operating System Versions

  1. Combine the architecture type with a variable that determines the operating system type of the client.

    You can combine the autofs OSREL variable with the CPU variable to form a name that determines both CPU type and OS release.

  2. Create the following map entry.

    bin     aa:/export/local/bin/$CPU$OSREL

    For clients that are running version 5.6 of the operating system, export the following file systems:

    • For SPARC clients – Export /export/local/bin/sparc5.6.

    • For x86 clients – Place executables in /export/local/bin/i3865.6.
