[1] Configure NFS Client.
www:~ #
zypper -n install nfs-client
www:~ #
vi /etc/idmapd.conf
# line 5: change to your domain name

Domain =
srv.world
www:~ #
mount -t nfs dlp.srv.world:/home /home

www:~ #
df -hT

Filesystem             Type   Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda2              ext3    28G  3.3G   24G  13% /
udev                   tmpfs  1.9G  100K  1.9G   1% /dev
tmpfs                  tmpfs  1.9G  648K  1.9G   1% /dev/shm
dlp.srv.world:/home nfs     28G  3.3G   24G  13% /home
# home directory from NFS server is mounted
[2] Configure NFS mounting on fstab to mount it when the system boots.
www:~ #
vi /etc/fstab
# add NFS mount's settings to the end

dlp.srv.world:/home /home                     nfs     defaults 0 0
[3] Configure auto-mounting. For example, set NFS directory on /mntdir.
www:~ #
zypper -n install autofs
www:~ #
vi /etc/auto.master
# add follows to the end

/-    /etc/auto.mount

www:~ #
vi /etc/auto.mount
# create new : [mount point] [option] [location]

/mntdir -fstype=nfs,rw  dlp.srv.world:/home

www:~ #
mkdir /mntdir

www:~ #
/etc/init.d/autofs start

www:~ #
chkconfig autofs on

# move to the mount point to make sure it normally mounted

www:~ #
cd /mntdir

www:/mntdir #

www:/mntdir #
cat /proc/mounts | grep mntdir

/etc/auto.mount /mntdir autofs rw,relatime,fd=6,pgrp=3263,timeout=600,minproto=5,maxproto=5,direct 0 0
dlp.srv.world:/home /mntdir nfs rw,relatime,vers=3,rsize=524288,wsize=524288,namlen=255,hard,
proto=tcp,timeo=600,retrans=2,sec=sys,mountaddr=10.0.0.30,mountvers=3,mountport=60305,mountproto=udp,
