ipa-client-automount - Configure automount and NFS for IPA SYNOPSIS
ipa-client-automount [OPTION]... <location> DESCRIPTION
Configures automount for IPA. The automount configuration consists of three files: o /etc/nsswitch.conf o /etc/sysconfig/autofs o /etc/autofs_ldap_auth.conf By default this will use DNS discovery to attempt to determine the IPA server(s) to use. If IPA servers are discovered then the automount client will be configured to use DNS discovery. If DNS discovery fails or a specific server is desired, use the --server option. The default automount location is named default. To specify a different one use the --location option. The IPA client must already be configured in order to configure automount. The IPA client is configured as part of a server installation. There are two ways to configure automount. The default is to use sssd to manage the automount maps. Alternatively autofs can configured to bind to LDAP over GSSAPI and authenticate using the machine's host principal. The nsswitch automount service is configured to use either sss or ldap and files depending on whether SSSD is configured or not. NFSv4 is also configured. The rpc.gssd and rpc.idmapd are started on clients to support Kerberos-secured mounts. OPTIONS
--server=SERVER Set the IPA server to connect to --location=LOCATION Automount location -S, --no-sssd Do not configure the client to use SSSD for automount -d, --debug Print debugging information to stdout -U, --unattended Unattended installation. The user will not be prompted --uninstall Restore the automount configuration files FILES
Files that will be always be configured: /etc/nsswitch.conf Files that will be configured when SSSD is the automount client (default): /etc/sssd/sssd.conf Files that will be configured when using the ldap automount client: /etc/sysconfig/autofs /etc/autofs_ldap_auth.conf EXIT STATUS
0 if the installation was successful 1 if an error occurred IPA

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). Note that automount units cannot be templated, nor is it possible to add multiple names to an automount unit by creating additional symlinks to its unit file. 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. IMPLICIT DEPENDENCIES
The following dependencies are implicitly added: o If an automount unit is beneath another mount unit in the file system hierarchy, both a requirement and an ordering dependency between both units are created automatically. o An implicit Before= dependency is created between an automount unit and the mount unit it activates. DEFAULT DEPENDENCIES
The following dependencies are added unless DefaultDependencies=no is set: o Automount units acquire automatic Before= and Conflicts= on in order to be stopped during shutdown. 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. TimeoutIdleSec= Configures an idle timeout. Once the mount has been idle for the specified time, systemd will attempt to unmount. Takes a unit-less value in seconds, or a time span value such as "5min 20s". Pass 0 to disable the timeout logic. The timeout is disabled by default. SEE ALSO
