Error NFS mount home directory

Hello All,

I have a question that I think I have the answer to but I'm not sure. All the information I get kind of dance around it. Well, my question is if you have NFS running, automount running, with auto_master and auto_home on a server. If a user logs in form cleint machine that has auto_home running will it mount the user home dir locate donthe server? Note not running NIS or NIS+ and the client machine does not have user in the passwd or shadow file. All the material I have read states that this can be done, but I don't know if they are referring to the fact that you need NIS of NIS+ running. This is for a Solaris 8 OS. I geuss the missing part for me is if it is possible how does it authenicate the user. THANKSSmilie

systemd.automount - Automount unit configuration SYNOPSIS
automount.automount DESCRIPTION
A unit configuration file whose name ends in ".automount" encodes information about a file system automount point controlled and supervised by systemd. This man page lists the configuration options specific to this unit type. See systemd.unit(5) for the common options of all unit configuration files. The common configuration items are configured in the generic [Unit] and [Install] sections. The automount specific configuration options are configured in the [Automount] section. Automount units must be named after the automount directories they control. Example: the automount point /home/lennart must be configured in a unit file home-lennart.automount. For details about the escaping logic used to convert a file system path to a unit name see systemd.unit(5). For each automount unit file a matching mount unit file (see systemd.mount(5) for details) must exist which is activated when the automount path is accessed. Example: if an automount unit home-lennart.automount is active and the user accesses /home/lennart the mount unit home-lennart.mount will be activated. Automount units may be used to implement on-demand mounting as well as parallelized mounting of file systems. If an automount point is beneath another mount point in the file system hierarchy, a dependency between both units is created automatically. FSTAB
Automount units may either be configured via unit files, or via /etc/fstab (see fstab(5) for details). For details how systemd parses /etc/fstab see systemd.mount(5). If an automount point is configured in both /etc/fstab and a unit file, the configuration in the latter takes precedence. OPTIONS
Automount files must include an [Automount] section, which carries information about the file system automount points it supervises. The options specific to the [Automount] section of automount units are the following: Where= Takes an absolute path of a directory of the automount point. If the automount point does not exist at time that the automount point is installed, it is created. This string must be reflected in the unit filename. (See above.) This option is mandatory. DirectoryMode= Directories of automount points (and any parent directories) are automatically created if needed. This option specifies the file system access mode used when creating these directories. Takes an access mode in octal notation. Defaults to 0755. SEE ALSO
