on a Linux or Solaris server, using automount/autofs, how do i create/populate a directory with automount entries without mounting them ?
For example, i have
/data yp:auto.data and /data/ subdirectories are only created after the first access. This is not persistent across reboot on Linux.
Is there a way to populate my /data without mounting all the disks ? So that users/applications see /data/disk1..N even if they are not mounted.
