Description:	Ubuntu 11.10
Release:	11.10
Linux release 3.0.0-16-server #29-Ubuntu SMP Tue Feb 14 13:08:12 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

ii  autofs5                     5.0.6-0ubuntu2              kernel-based automounter for Linux, version 5
ii  nis                         3.17-32ubuntu1              clients and daemons for the Network Information Service (NIS)

When using autofs with maps stored in NIS you need to restart the autofs
service to get it to work correctly.

The NIS init script is a sysv style one which is started after autofs,
NIS needs to be started first.
