I am using OpenSuSE 12.1 with homes shared through LDAP and NFS. ldap stores the maps. My problem is I can't have the shares mounted on boot. It's only working when restarting the autofs service manually. On a CentOS 6.3 there is no such problem.

My nsswitch.conf:

passwd: files sss
group:  files sss

hosts:  files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns
networks:       files dns

services:       files
protocols:      files
rpc:            files
ethers:         files
netmasks:       files
netgroup:       files nis
publickey:      files

bootparams:     files
automount:      files ldap
aliases:        files

My /etc/openldap/ldap.conf:

SIZELIMIT       20
TIMELIMIT       15
#DEREF          never
TLS_REQCERT     demand
uri     ldap://
base    dc=domain,dc=com

My /etc/sssd/sssd.conf:

config_file_version = 2
reconnection_retries = 3
sbus_timeout = 30
services = nss, pam
domains = domain.com

filter_groups = root
filter_users = root
reconnection_retries = 3

reconnection_retries = 3

 id_provider = ldap
 auth_provider = ldap
 min_id = 500
 max_id = 30000
 ldap_schema = rfc2307
 ldap_uri =  ldaps://ldap-ms.local,  ldaps://ldap-sl.local, ldap://ldap
 ldap_search_base = dc=domain,dc=com
 ldap_user_search_base =  ou=People,dc=domain,dc=com
 ldap_group_search_base = ou=Group,dc=domain,dc=com
 ldap_tls_cacert = /etc/pki/CA/certs/domain-cacert.pem
 ldap_tls_reqcert = hard
 cache_credentials = true
 enumerate = True

My /etc/sysconfig/autofs:


Am I missing something?

Any chance your LDAP service is not available with the maps in time for the booting file system query? That would explain the later success with restart once the system is up and stable. – zedman9991 Jul 13 '12 at 17:57
What are the start-levels (within your target runlevel) for autofs and your ldap-client? – Nils Jul 13 '12 at 20:09
@zedman9991 This problem occurs only with my version of opensuse (12.1) On Centos 6.3 and OpenSuse 11.2 it works fine. – igor012 Jul 16 '12 at 9:02
@Nils Autofs starts on runlevels 3 and 5. – igor012 Jul 16 '12 at 9:02
There is a difference in the way autofs mounts maps on boot on opensuse 11.2 it mounts them at the access but on opensuse 12.1 it mounts them all but no access. – igor012 Jul 16 '12 at 10:04
