Hi Todd, 2009/12/17 Todd Volkert <tvolkert gmail com>:
Hi all, The past few Fedora installs, I've specified a NIS server during the Anaconda installation so I don't have to create any local user accounts. However, once installation is complete, I can't log into any NIS accounts because autofs insn't installed, causing the user accounts' home folders to not be mounted. I have to sign in as root, install autofs, then all is well. My question is: shouldn't autofs be installed by default, as part of the base installation?
Sounds like you're running Fedora on a bunch of machines. How are you doing the installs? Are you using a simple install DVD for every machine that comes your way? Since your environment is running a setup that's different than 95% of the end user environments, it might be more prudent to use a kickstart file with your installs. This will guarantee that autofs is present on every machine from the beginning. Depending on your environment, there are a number of different ways you can deliver your kickstart to your machines at install time. -Yaakov
