SUMMARY: SS1000 (Sol 2.3) automount dumps core * extra info missing

    We found the problem ourselves. truss'ing automountd revealed that it
    was crashing when reading /etc/netmasks. Due to past history, our yp
    netmask was and had never given us any
    problems. By changing /etc/netmasks on both SS1000's to (i.e. the inclusion of zeroes to complete
    the network number), both systems' automountd started to behave

    This is strange, given that the global yp mask is still
    143.106 and that ypbind is invoked (/etc/rc2.d/S71...)
    before automountd (/etc/rc2.d/S73...). Also, other 2.3 machines never
    exhibited such behaviour with the same setup.

    So, we're correcting the global yp netmask map as well (we'll add
    zeroes to the network number)...

I forgot to mention that /etc/nsswitch.conf had the correct entry for
the above reasoning:

netmasks: nis [NOTFOUND=return] files

Also, the machine is also running NSkit (nis server), though it
exhibited the same behaviour without it.
