There are a couple servers that I use the fancy new (to me at least) autofs scripts to mount on my Ubuntu 9.10 client machine. You know, the ones that let you just
cd /net/servername/exportname and it automagically turns that into the command to mount that export from that server at that mountpoint (so cool). To test something out though, I wanted to make sure one of the servers was not auto-mounted by autofs. The simple way to tell autofs to ignore that server (let's call it, foobarbaz) is to edit
/etc/auto.net and put this snippet right after the
# don't mount foobarbaz, for now: if [ $key = "foobarbaz" ]; then exit fi
Then restart autofs:
sudo /etc/init.d/autofs restart
And autofs automagically mounts any nfs server except foobarbaz.
