Description

Automount testing.

Setup

  1. Make sure you have a working FreeIPA server (see QA:Testcase_freeipav2_installation)
  2. Make sure the CLI works as expected (see QA:Testcase_freeipav2_cli)
  3. This requires a separate client machine from the IPA server machine (see QA:Testcase_freeipav2_client_enrollment)

How to test

FreeIPAv2 supports locations, the default location is called default, please keep that in mind.

Preparation

  • prepare NFS exports on one server in your IPA domain
# This is an example line of /etc/exports file
/home 192.168.1.0/16 (rw,fsid=0,insecure,no_subtree_check,sync,anonuid=65534,anongid=65534)
  • prepare autofs on your client machine:

Edit the /etc/sysconfig/autofs file as follows. This specifies the attributes that autofs searches for:

#
# Other common LDAP naming
#
MAP_OBJECT_CLASS="automountMap"
ENTRY_OBJECT_CLASS="automount"
MAP_ATTRIBUTE="automountMapName"
ENTRY_ATTRIBUTE="automountKey"
VALUE_ATTRIBUTE="automountInformation"

You also need to specify which LDAP server to use, and the basedn for LDAP searches:

LDAP_URI="ldap://ipa.example.com"
SEARCH_BASE="cn=automount,dc=example,dc=com"

Save the file and restart autofs:

# service autofs restart 

Testing indirect maps

  • create a new map in the default location
# this is an example how to create new map in the default location
ipa automountmap-add default auto.share
  • add the map to auto.master
# this is an example how to add the new map to auto.master
ipa automountkey-add default auto.master --key=/share --info=auto.share
  • create new key as a part of the map. The key has to correspond with existing mount you prepared earlier on NFS server
# this is an example how to create new key in the map
ipa automountkey-add default auto.share --key=man --info="-ro,soft,rsize=8192,wsize=8192 ipa.example.com:/shared/man"
  • try to access the directory that should be automounted on the client machine
# for example:
ls /share/man

Testing direct maps

  • map auto.direct is created during installation by default
ipa automountmap-show default auto.direct --all --raw

The result should be something like:

dn: automountmapname=auto.direct,cn=default,cn=automount,dc=example,dc=com
automountmapname: auto.direct
objectclass: automountMap
objectclass: top
  • create a directory used as mount target for one of autofs mounts on client machine
  • create new key as a part of auto.direct map. The key has to correspond with existing mount you prepared earlier on NFS server
  • try to access the directory that should be automounted on the client machine

Expected Results

All the test steps should end with the specified results.
