NAME

automount2amd - converts old Sun automount maps to Amd maps

SYNOPSIS

automount2amd auto.map

DESCRIPTION

automount2amd is used to convert an old Sun automount maps named auto.map to an Amd map.
This perl script will use the following /default entry
    type:=nfs;opts:=rw,grpid,nosuid,utimeout=600
If you wish to override that, define the $DEFAULTS environment variable, or modify the script.
If you wish to generate Amd maps using the hostd (host domain) Amd map syntax, then define the environment variable $DOMAIN or modify the script.

EXAMPLE

Say you have the Sun automount file auto.foo, with these two lines:
  home                  earth:/home
  moon  -ro,intr        server:/proj/images
Running
    automount2amd auto.foo > amd.foo
will produce the Amd map amd.foo with this content:
# generated by automount2amd on Sat Aug 14 17:59:32 US/Eastern 1999

/defaults \ type:=nfs;opts:=rw,grpid,nosuid,utimeout=600
home host==earth;type:=link;fs:=/home \ rhost:=earth;rfs:=/home
moon -addopts:=ro,intr \ host==server;type:=link;fs:=/proj/images \ rhost:=server;rfs:=/proj/images

BUGS

automount2amd does not understand newer Sun Automount map syntax, those used by autofs.
