This page was helpful to me. I am going to use it a lot.
From: C [ date: 2001-12-19 ]

I am using (setting up) autofs in conjunction with nis.
I have defined a netgroup called nis main through which I would like to
administer nis logins and home directory creation.
I would, therefore, like the fileservers to export their filesystems to
the nis servers without root squash.
I would like to specify the set of nis servers via netgroups.
But that does not seem to be working.
Please help!

[root@nis-slave-3 backup]# cat /etc/exports
/backup @nismain(rw,no_root_squash) *,root_squash)
[root@nis-slave-3 backup]# ypcat -k netgroup
nismain (,,) (,,) (nis-$
[root@nis-slave-3 backup]# host dns has address

[root@nis-slave-3 backup]# host cs-ws-64 has address

[root@nis-slave-3 backup]# cat /var/lib/nfs/xtab

*** Exporting fails completely when I modify /etc/exports to:
/backup @nismain(rw,no_root_squash)

Thanks and regards,
