NAME
rmvolmgr - HAL-aware removable volume manager
SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/rmvolmgr [-chns]
DESCRIPTION
The rmvolmgr command is a volume manager that can automatically mount and unmount removable media and hot-pluggable storage. The default mount point is /media. rmvolmgr is one of a number of Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL)-aware tools that are shipped with the Solaris operating system. See hald(1M). Multiple instances of rmvolmgr can be run simultaneously. A system instance of rmvolmgr runs by default as a service management facility (SMF) service (see smf(5)). Its fault management resource identifier (FMRI) is: svc:/system/filesystem/rmvolmgr You can run your own instance of rmvolmgr by adding it to the .xinitrc file or a similar session startup script. In such a case, the system rmvolmgr instance will not manage volumes that belong to you, the owner of the startup script. For example, a user logged on to the work- station console (/dev/console) who invokes his own instance of rmvolmgr will own locally connected devices, such as CD-ROM drives and devices connected to the local USB or FireWire ports. In addition to mounting volumes under /media, rmvolmgr also creates legacy symbolic links under /cdrom, /floppy, and /rmdisk. rmvolmgr also provides backwards compatibility with CDE removable media interfaces by maintaining notification files under /tmp/.removable. This functionality can be disabled by using the -c option. The -c and -n options can also be specified as SMF properties. See "Examples."
OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -c Disable CDE compatibility. -h Display help information and exit. -n Do not create legacy mountpoint symbolic links. -s Invoke in system instance mode.
EXAMPLES
Example 1 Using SMF Properties to Set Options The following svccfg(1M) command and subcommands use SMF properties to set the -c and -n options. example# svccfg svc:> select rmvolmgr svc:/system/filesystem/rmvolmgr> listprop rmvolmgr/* rmvolmgr/legacy_mountpoints boolean true rmvolmgr/cde_compatible boolean true svc:/system/filesystem/rmvolmgr> setprop \ rmvolmgr/legacy_mountpoints=false svc:/system/filesystem/rmvolmgr> setprop rmvolmgr/cde_compatible=false svc:/system/filesystem/rmvolmgr> exit example#
