Automount service does not start inside the container:
Loading autofs4:                                           [FAILED]


Most likely, the corresponding kernel modules are not loaded on the node:
[root@localhost][~]# lsmod | grep autofs4


  1. Load module on the node:
    [root@localhost][~]# modprobe autofs4
    [root@localhost][~]# lsmod | grep autofs4
    autofs4                28255  0
  2. Make sure it is loaded after the node reboots automatically:
    [root@localhost][~]# echo "modprobe autofs4" >> /etc/rc.local
