Setup notes

epel

yum install epel-release -y

Once the EPEL repository is installed, you can install AppS by just running the following command:

yum install --enablerepo="epel" apps -y

autofs

yum install autofs
yum install nfs-utils nfs-utils-lib

That will install default settings. By default, autofs will auto mount any known location to /net. Make sure they in your /etc/hosts file.
