This info is valid for this mac osx version:

ProductName:    Mac OS X
ProductVersion:    10.6.8
BuildVersion:    10K549

This is the only version I have handy ;-)

to get mac osx to automount an nfsv4 share on a centos 6 server:

  • create automount map. I called it /etc/auto_foo:
$ cat /etc/auto_foo
*    -fstype=nfs,4.0alpha
  • modify /etc/auto_master:
$ cat /etc/auto_master
# Automounter master map
+auto_master        # Use directory service
/net            -hosts        -nobrowse,hidefromfinder,nosuid
/home            auto_home    -nobrowse,hidefromfinder
/Network/Servers    -fstab
/-            -static

## extra maps
/nfs4              /etc/auto_foo
  • create /nfs4 dir with root:wheel 755 permissions.
  • restart automount:
# automount -vc

After that when you access a sub-folder of home under /nfs4/ it will be automounted.
