KB-3257: cannot handle the option in automount map entry

Authentication Service ,  

12 April,16 at 11:11 AM

Applies to: All versions of DirectControl
An automount NIS map is configured like this:
Name: *
Network Path:  test-machine:/engineering/&
Options: rsize=131072,wsize=524288
However the directory is not accessible and the following error message appears in /var/log/messages:
May 29 13:22:18 eng-abc automount[6064]: validate_location: invalid character "=" found in location rsize=131072,wsize=524288#011test-machine:/engineering/dev
Adding the prefix "-" into the option field fixes the issue and the correct option value should be like this:
Options: -rsize=131072,wsize=524288
