While "amd" is fresh on some people's minds, can I re-submit a request from
a long time ago?
I suspect I'm not the only one in this boat. I have 2 NetBSD machines, on
different subnets, living inside two different NIS/automount worlds. Every
other machine in those worlds uses "automount" (even the SGIs and the HP).
So we use "automount" with a SunOS machine serving NIS auto.* maps. Since
changing all of them to use "amd" is *not* an option, I would really like
to hear from somebody who's cobbled together an "amd" setup to live in an
all-automounter world, using NIS automount maps. (This would be a BIG win
for me and I'd even give you a cookie at USENIX, 'cept I'm not going because
Newt and his fellow Congress idiots can't pass a budget, so I can't go. :-( )
