OS X Server: Enabling the suid option for automounter maps in OS X Mavericks

Automounter enforces a nosuid option on all map entries by default in OS X Mavericks. You can allow the suid option if you wish.

Using the instructions in this article, edit the /etc/autofs.conf file to allow the suid option:

  1. Change the line containing "AUTOMOUNTD_NOSUID=TRUE" to "AUTOMOUNTD_NOSUID=FALSE".
  2. Restart.

The suid option will now be honored if it appears in individual map records or in the defaults, which are also set in /etc/autofs.conf with the "AUTOMOUNTD_MNTOPTS=" line.
