autofs starting early

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.


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

start on runlevel [2345]

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.
