Our Configuration

Now that we know how to do it, let's move on and build some maps. We also talked about removing the redundant user mounts, so we'll take this opportunity to move them all onto one machine, still in /export/home, but now under the control of Autofs. We'll use neon for this task.

While we are moving things around, we'll also NFS-mount the manual pages onto every machine from oxygen. This allows us to free up some space on all the local disks if we wish.

Table 18.9 shows the original location, along with the name of the map we will create and its type.
