Automount 'Host is Down'

I've got a sun storedge disk array with two 9BG disks that im trying to automount to FreeBSD 6.2
I've got the following in my rc.conf:
amd_flags="-a /.amd_mnt -l syslog /host /etc/amd.map"
my fstab has the following entries:
/dev/da0s1b none swap sw 0 0
/dev/da0s1d /mnt/s ufs rw,noauto 0 0
/dev/da1s1b none swap sw 0 0
/dev/da1s1d /mnt/t ufs rw,noauto 0 0
my /etc/amd.map is as follows:
# $FreeBSD: src/etc/amd.map,v 1.9 2002/05/15 22:24:29 obrien Exp $
mount:="/sbin/mount mount /mnt/s";\
unmount:="/sbin/umount umount /mnt/s"
mount:="/sbin/mount mount /mnt/t";\
unmount:="/sbin/umount umount /mnt/t"
and finally, my /etc/amd.conf is as follows:
# GLOBAL OPTIONS SECTION
[ global ]
normalize_hostnames = no
print_pid = no
restart_mounts = yes
auto_dir = /n
log_file = /var/log/amd
log_options = all
#debug_options = all
plock = no
selectors_on_default = yes
# config.guess picks up "sunos5" and I don't want to edit my maps yet
os = sos5
# if you print_version after setting up "os", it will show it.
print_version = no
map_type = file
search_path = /etc/amd.map:/usr/lib/amd:/usr/local/AMD/lib
browsable_dirs = yes
# DEFINE AN AMD MOUNT POINT
[ /s ]
map_name = amd.s
[ /t ]
map_name = amd.t
I have created links from / to /host/localhost/t as well as /host/localhost/s
When I boot the system I have the /host directory. If I ls /hosts the directory is empty as expeced. When I try and cd to /t (remember linking through to /host/localhost/t) i get a message saying /t: Host is down message.
Now if I look in /host, I have the /host/localhost directory, so it seems that amd is trying to work, but for some reason /t is unavailable.
If I change my fstab to mount the partitions without amd i.e so that the /t and /s partitions automount on boot as well as turning off the amd deamon on boot, (after creating directories for /t and /s under /mnt) everything works fine.
I just cant figure out why the /t: and /s host is down message is appearing when using amd.
Has anyone had a similar experience ?
