Set Up a DNS Record for a FedFS Server

After an appropriate DNS record is created, mounting a file system using FedFS is completed by the automounter after the mount point has been accessed. The DNS record for the server appears similar to the following:

$ nslookup -q=srv _nfs-domainroot._tcp.example.com bee.example.com
Server:         bee.example.com

_nfs-domainroot._tcp.example.com        service = 1 0 2049 bee.example.com.

After you set up the DNS record, Oracle Solaris will mount the FedFS file system automatically when an application accesses the /nfs4/example.com mount point.
