Perderabo,

You got it. But to clear it up better. I wanted to know if the server had a user account export and shared. Will the same user on a client machine have to have an entry in the client passwd and shadow also?
How would this be done? Would you have to have the same auto_master and auto_home files on all the machine (server and clients)? Would that mean that on all the machine that this user would want to use, he/she would have to have an identical passwd, shadow entry in the local machine? If I don't make scense forgive me. I will try to explain from another angle. THANKS

nfsconfig(8)						      System Manager's Manual						      nfsconfig(8)

NAME
nfsconfig - Launches the SysMan Menu at the Network File System Configuration (NFS) level, where you can configure a system as an NFS server or as an NFS client SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/nfsconfig /usr/sbin/sysman nfs DESCRIPTION
The NFS Configuration section of SysMan Menu is used by the System Administrator or the UNIX system manager to manage NFS configuration issues. It allows the system to be configured as an NFS server (to make its file systems available to remote machines), or as an NFS client (to mount remote file systems). Before using nfsconfig, be sure to configure Network Interfaces using the Network Configuration section of the SysMan menu. You can configure your system as an NFS Server, an NFS Client, or both. However, if the Network Interfaces are down, the following daemons will not start: nfsd, pcnfsd, proplistd, mountd, and automountd. Use nfsconfig to do the following: Manage the configuration of the system as an NFS server. You can only configure your system as an NFS server if the NFS Server option is built into the kernel. Manage the configuration of the system as client-only system Specify file sys- tems to be mounted or exported Start and stop the NFS daemons Online Help: Online help is available for the NFS dialog boxes. You can get help by selecting the Help button on any dialog box. RESTRICTIONS
You must be root or have the appropriate privileges to run this application. FILES
Specifies the environment variables that define the nfsconfig configuration on your system SEE ALSO
Commands: X(1X), automount(8), mountd(8), nfsd(8), nfsiod(8), pcnfsd(8), proplistd(8), rpc.lockd(8), rpc.statd(8), dxfileshare(8) Files: nfs_intro(4), rc.config(8) Networking: tcp(7), udp(7) nfsconfig(8)
