I discovered that the problem disappeared after SAMBA was switched off.
A posting on the WEB suggested that if SAMBA started first it could
cause RPC problems. Can anyone confirm this?

Subject: automount problem


I have a SUSE Enterprise server from which I export my home directories.
I can logon to a redhat linux client and my home directory mounts ok.
However if I try to ls /home/<id> on my suse server I am told "/bin/ls:
/home/01234567: No such file or directory" . I can mount a share from
another machine on my suse server ok. There is something not quite right
about the suse machine that I can't figure out. Any advise would be most
welcome. I have a listed the fstab, exports and log file entries I get.
