AUTOMOUNT(8)						    BSD System Manager's Manual 					      AUTOMOUNT(8)

NAME
automount -- update autofs mounts SYNOPSIS
automount [-D name=value] [-L] [-c] [-f] [-o options] [-v] [-u] DESCRIPTION
When called without options, the automount command parses the auto_master(5) configuration file and any direct maps that it references, and mounts or unmounts autofs(4) filesystems to match. These options are available: -D Define a variable. It is only useful with -L. -L Do not mount or unmount anything. Instead parse auto_master(5) and any direct maps, then print them to standard output. When specified more than once, all the maps, including indirect ones, will be parsed and shown. This is useful when debugging configuration problems. -c Flush caches, discarding possibly stale information obtained from maps and directory services. -f Force unmount, to be used with -u. -o Specify mount options to be used along with the ones specified in the maps. It is only useful with -L. -u Try to unmount filesystems mounted by automountd(8). autofs(5) mounts are not unmounted. To unmount all autofs mounts, use umount -At autofs. -v Increase verbosity. EXIT STATUS
The automount utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs. EXAMPLES
Unmount all filesystems mounted by automountd(8): automount -u SEE ALSO
auto_master(5), autofs(5), automountd(8), autounmountd(8) HISTORY

NAME
automountd - autofs mount/unmount daemon SYNOPSIS
automountd [-Tvn] [-D name=value] automountd is an RPC server that answers file system mount and unmount requests from the autofs file system. It uses local files or name service maps to locate file systems to be mounted. These maps are described with the automount(1M) command. If automount finds any non-trivial entries in either the local or distributed automount maps and if the daemon is not running already, the automountd daemon is automatically invoked by automount(1M). automountd enables the svc:/network/nfs/nlockmgr service (lockd(1M)), and the svc:/network/nfs/status service (statd(1M)), if NFS mounts need to be done. At startup, the automountd daemon is invoked as is invoked as the system/filesystem/autofs:default service. See . The following options are supported: -D name=value Assign value to the indicated automount map substitution variable. These assignments cannot be used to substitute variables in the master map auto_master. -n Turn off browsing for all autofs mount points. This option overrides the -browse autofs map option on the local host. -T Trace. Expand each RPC call and display it on the standard output. -v Verbose. Log status messages to the console. USAGE
See largefile(5) for the description of the behavior of automountd when encountering files greater than or equal to 2 Gbyte ( 2**31 bytes). /etc/auto_master Master map for automounter. /etc/default/autofs Supplies default values for parameters for automount and automountd. See autofs(4). See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Availability |SUNWcsu | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ svcs(1), automount(1M), svcadm(1M), autofs(4), attributes(5), largefile(5), smf(5) The automountd service is managed by the service management facility, smf(5), under the service identifier: svc:/system/filesystem/autofs Administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or requesting restart, can be performed using svcadm(1M). The ser- vice's status can be queried using svcs(1). If it is disabled, it is enabled by automount(1M) unless the application/auto_enable property is set to false. 3 Mar 2005 automountd(1M)
