SYNOPSIS

automount2amd auto.map

DESCRIPTION

automount2amd is used to convert an old Sun automount maps named auto.map to an Amd map.

This perl script will use the following /default entry

    type:=nfs;opts:=rw,grpid,nosuid,utimeout=600

If you wish to override that, define the $DEFAULTS environment variable, or modify the script.

If you wish to generate Amd maps using the hostd (host domain) Amd map syntax, then define the environment variable $DOMAIN or modify the script.

EXAMPLE

Say you have the Sun automount file auto.foo, with these two lines:
  home                  earth:/home
  moon  -ro,intr        server:/proj/images

Running
    automount2amd auto.foo > amd.foo

will produce the Amd map amd.foo with this content:
# generated by automount2amd on Sat Aug 14 17:59:32 US/Eastern 1999

/defaults \ type:=nfs;opts:=rw,grpid,nosuid,utimeout=600

home host==earth;type:=link;fs:=/home \ rhost:=earth;rfs:=/home

moon -addopts:=ro,intr \ host==server;type:=link;fs:=/proj/images \ rhost:=server;rfs:=/proj/images

BUGS

automount2amd does not understand newer Sun Automount map syntax, those used by autofs.
