NAME

       ipa-client-automount - Configure automount and NFS for IPA

SYNOPSIS

       ipa-client-automount [OPTION]... <location>

DESCRIPTION

       Configures automount for IPA.

       The automount configuration consists of three files:

       o      /etc/nsswitch.conf

       o      /etc/sysconfig/autofs

       o      /etc/autofs_ldap_auth.conf

       By  default  this will use DNS discovery to attempt to determine the IPA server(s) to use.
       If IPA servers are discovered then the automount client will  be  configured  to  use  DNS
       discovery.

       If DNS discovery fails or a specific server is desired, use the --server option.

       The  default  automount  location  is  named  default.  To specify a different one use the
       --location option.

       The IPA client must already be configured in order to configure automount. The IPA  client
       is configured as part of a server installation.

       There  are  two  ways  to  configure  automount.  The default is to use sssd to manage the
       automount maps. Alternatively autofs can configured  to  bind  to  LDAP  over  GSSAPI  and
       authenticate using the machine's host principal.

       The nsswitch automount service is configured to use either sss or ldap and files depending
       on whether SSSD is configured or not.

       NFSv4 is also configured. The rpc.gssd and rpc.idmapd are started on  clients  to  support
       Kerberos-secured mounts.

OPTIONS

       --server=SERVER Set the FQDN of the IPA server to connect to

       --location=LOCATION
              Automount location

       -S, --no-sssd
              Do not configure the client to use SSSD for automount

       -d, --debug
              Print debugging information to stdout

       -U, --unattended
              Unattended installation. The user will not be prompted

       --uninstall
              Restore the automount configuration files

FILES

       Files that will be always be configured:

              /etc/nsswitch.conf

       Files that will be configured when SSSD is the automount client (default):

              /etc/sssd/sssd.conf

       Files that will be configured when using the ldap automount client:

              /etc/sysconfig/autofs

              /etc/autofs_ldap_auth.conf

EXIT STATUS

       0 if the installation was successful

       1 if an error occurred

       2 if uninstalling and automount is not configured

       3 if installing and automount already configured
