[Gluster-users] Automount using /net/<brickname> in Glusterfs 3.1?

I'm running Glusterfs 3.1.01 on Centos 5.2. I have 2 bricks setup as mirrored and distributed, created using the 3.1 gluster commands. They all work fine for client mounts and NFS mounts on the client of the form:
 mount -t nfs <brickname>:/mytest /mytest.

I've gone through all the Gluster documentation about automatic mounting - /etc/fstab entries, etc. I did find some information on entries needed for map files - but nothing I've tried has worked for automounting a Glusterfs NFS share with this syntax:

cd /net/<brickname>/mydirectory

The command returns successfully, but a subsequent "mount" command shows that this automount directory is actually writing to "/" on the client.

This is the syntax used everywhere in house so that explicit NFS mounts aren't needed in the /etc/fstab of every machine, and so there is no dependency on those mounts at boot time.

Has anybody tried this syntax, and if so what did you have to configure to use autofs or amd daemons to perform this activity?
