autofs starting early

Problem:

NIS users log in but get told there's no home directory available. autofs appears to be starting correctly but isn't picking up NIS maps.

Solution:

If your distribution uses Upstart for starting processes, go to /etc/init/autofs.conf and change the line that says

start on runlevel [2345]
to

start on (local-filesystems and net-device-up IFACE!=lo)
This will make Upstart wait with launching autofs until filesystem and networking is available.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
