After some research, I was able to map an NSS volume to my OES Linux serve (OES2 SP3) without a problem. Used TID 3797138. Here's the big question ... How do I make that mounting occur automatically at bootup? The two choices I've tried are putting the command into fstab - did not work for me or using automount - which also did not work for me. Any help with specific instructions would be great .. I'm still a newbie at this Linux stuff. Can I do it directly through Yast?
