I have configured NFS client to mount user's home using autofs automounter. /home of server is shared using nfsv3. I am using NIS (ypserve) for authentication. NIS and NFS both are configured on the same server. I am using ubuntu 12.04 on both, the server and client.
Now the problem is that when I login graphically on ubuntu client autofs is mounting home directory for this loging in user and as well for all users who has loged in previously. When i am loging in using shell F1 - F6 it's mounting only the loging in user's home directory. This may be a problem due to switch user functionality in ubuntu desktop. It shows all praviosly loged in users list on top right corner.
Although loging in user can't access files of others due to the permission limit i have given on the server, but still it's making my server slightly busy while mounting all those homes in all my clients.
I am looking forward for a solution of this problem...:::)
