       autofs - file containing parameter values for automountd daemon and automount command


       The  autofs file resides in directory /etc/default and supplies default parameters for the
       automountd(1M) daemon and the automount(1M) command.

       The autofs file format is ASCII; comment lines begin with the  crosshatch  (#)  character.
       Parameters consist of a keyword followed by an equal sign followed by the parameter value,
       of the form:


       As shipped, the parameters in the autofs file are commented out. As root, you must  uncom-
       ment a keyword-value line to make the value for that parameter take effect.

       Administrators  can make changes to the startup parameters for automountd by logging in as
       root and editing the autofs file. Changes made to autofs values on an automount	or  auto-
       mountd  command	line override values in /etc/default/autofs. The /etc/default/autofs file
       is preserved across operating system upgrades.

       The following parameters are currently supported in the autofs file:


	   Specifies a duration, in seconds, that a file system is to remain mounted when not  in
	   use. The default value is 600 (10 minutes). Equivalent to the -t option in automount.


	   Verbose mode. Causes you to be notified of non-critical events, suchs as autofs mounts
	   and unmounts. The default value is FALSE. Equivalent to the -v option in automount.


	   Verbose mode. Causes status messages to be logged  to  /var/svc/log/system-filesystem-
	   autofs:default.log.	(See  smf(5).)	The  default value is FALSE. Equivalent to the -v
	   option in automountd.


	   Turn on or off browsing for all autofs mount  points.  The  default	value  is  FALSE.
	   Equivalent to the -n option in automountd.


	   Expands   each   RPC   call	 and   logs   it  to  /var/svc/log/system-filesystem-aut-
	   ofs:default.log. (See smf(5).) The default value, 0, turns off such tracing.  Starting
	   with 1, with each higher value, the verbosity of trace output increases.


	   Environment	variables.  Each  environment  variable-value  pairing must be on its own
	   line. You can specify multiple such pairings. There are no environment  variable  set-
	   tings supplied. For example: AUTOMOUNTD_ENV=DAY=TUES
