Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide

share_nfs: /home: Operation not applicable


This message usually indicates that the system has a local file system mounted on /home, which is where the automounter usually mounts users' home directories.


When a system is running the automounter, do not mount local file systems on the /home directory. Mount them on another directory, such as /disk2, which on most systems you have to create. You could also change the automounter auto_home entry, but that is a more difficult solution.
