How to Use a Public File Handle With Autofs

  1. Become an administrator.

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

  2. Create the following entry in the autofs map.
    /usr/local     -ro,public    bee:/export/share/local

    The –public option forces the public handle to be used. If the NFS server does not support a public file handle, the mount fails.
