unable to start autofs service on Ubuntu 14.04 with autofs-ldap

Asked by Qianqian Fang on 2016-06-15

I followed the instructions on this page to set up an autofs schema in ldap server, and the client

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AutofsLDAP

However, when I tried to start the autofs on the client computer using

   sudo service autofs restart

I got the following line in my log:

  [167368.605544] init: wait-for-state (autofsypbind) main process (29422) killed by TERM signal

can someone offer some suggestions on how to debug this issue?

thanks

never mind. I figured out what was wrong. I used

sudo automount -v

to list debug info. it turns out I only installed autofs but not autofs-ldap. once installed both, the error disappeared,
