Autofs and Special Characters

If you have a map entry that contains special characters, you might have to mount directories that have names that the autofs map parser cannot process properly. The autofs parser is sensitive to names that contain colons, commas, and spaces, for example. These names should be enclosed in double quotes, as in the following example:

/vms    -ro    vmsserver: -  -  - "rc0:dk1 - "
/mac    -ro    gator:/ - "Mr Disk - "
