Re: [opensource-62] autofs overwriting /home?

1) what does your auto.master and auto.misc configs look like?

2) What does DF output look like before and after?  I think that output should have everything in it.

Sounds like a behavior change in a later version of autofs is a possibility.

using ldap & autofs (automount nfs home shares on server) for roaming profiles on LAN.  all the ubuntu lucid clients work fine; the issue below is only w/ the new linux mint client.

on it, romaing users can login fine & home dirs automount fine to /blah/home/homedir.  just like on lucid clients.  BUT if autofs is running it masks the /home so that the 1 local user on the client no longer has its home dir!

for exampe: roaming user = billy.bob, local user = admin.  roaming user logins & his home dir = /blah/home/billy.bob - all fine.  but whether or not roaming user is logged in, as long as autofs is running, /home is empty!  if autofs is off /home/admin exists.  with autofs off, i can still manually mount billy.bob's home dir to /blah or wherever & /home/admin exists, so its not the mounting or the ldap login.  somehow autofs is mounting something to /home or doing some odd thing.

btw admin user is excluded from ldap on the client.  again /home/admin is gone even when no one is logged in, as long as autofs is running.  autofs isnt configured to mount anything to /home, only to /blah/home/
