mount_pcfs(1M) System Administration Commands mount_pcfs(1M)
mount_pcfs - mount pcfs file systems
mount -F pcfs [generic_options] [-o FSType-specific_options] special | mount_point
mount -F pcfs [generic_options] [-o FSType-specific_options] special mount_point
mount attaches an MS-DOS file system (pcfs) to the file system hierarchy at the mount_point, which is the pathname of a directory. If
mount_point has any contents prior to the mount operation, these are hidden until the file system is unmounted.
If mount is invoked with special or mount_point as the only arguments, mount will search /etc/vfstab to fill in the missing arguments,
including the FSType-specific_options; see mount(1M) for more details.
The special argument can be one of two special device file types:
o A floppy disk, such as /dev/diskette0 or /dev/diskette1.
o A DOS logical drive on a hard disk expressed as device-name:logical-drive , where device-name specifies the special block device-file
for the whole disk and logical-drive is either a drive letter (c through z) or a drive number (1 through 24). Examples are
/dev/dsk/c0t0d0p0:c and /dev/dsk/c0t0d0p0:1.
The special device file type must have a formatted MS-DOS file system with either a 12-bit, 16-bit, or 32-bit File Allocation Table.
See mount(1M) for the list of supported options.
Specify pcfs file system specific options. The following options are supported:
Force uppercase characters in filenames to lowercase when reading them from the filesystem. This is for compatibility with the pre-
vious behavior of pcfs. The default is nofoldcase.
/etc/mnttab table of mounted file systems
/etc/vfstab list of default parameters for each file system
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:
| ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE |
|Availability |SUNWesu |
mount(1M), mountall(1M), mount(2), mnttab(4), vfstab(4), attributes(5), pcfs(7FS)
If the directory on which a file system is to be mounted is a symbolic link, the file system is mounted on the directory to which the sym-
bolic link refers, rather than on top of the symbolic link itself.
