How to Modify the Master Map

  1. Log in as a user who has permissions to change the maps based on the name service that you are using. If you are using the local map files, assume the root role.
  2. Make your changes to the master map.

    The specific steps needed to change the map depends on the name service that you are using. if you are using local files as a name service, use a text editor. If your name service is NIS, use make files.

  3. For each client, become an administrator.

    For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.4.

  4. For each client, run the automount command to make your changes effective.
  5. Notify your users to run the automount command as superuser on their own systems in order to incorporate the new information from the master map.
