       /etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs - Control Script for automounter

       /etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs start|stop|restart|reload|status

       autofs  controls	 the  operation of the automount(8) daemons running on
       the Linux system. Usually autofs is invoked at system  boot  time  with
       the  start  parameter and at shutdown time with the stop parameter. The
       autofs script can also be manually invoked by the system	 administrator
       to shut down, restart or reload the automounters.

       autofs	will   consult	a  configuration  file	/etc/auto.master  (see
       auto.master(5)) by default to find mount points on the system. For each
       of  those mount points automount(8) will mount and start a thread, with
       the appropriate parameters, to manage the mount point.

       /etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs reload will check the current  auto.master  map
       against	running daemons. It will kill those daemons whose entries have
       changed and then start daemons for new or changed entries.

       If a map is modified then the change will become effective immediately.
       If the auto.master map is modified then the autofs script must be rerun
       to activate the changes.

       /etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs status will display the status of, automount(8)
       ,running or not.
