autofs.conf -- automount(8) and automountd(8) configuration file DESCRIPTION
The autofs.conf file specifies various configuration options for automount(8) and automountd(8). autofs.conf consists of a series of lines, each of which may contain a line that sets a parameter, a comment, or a blank line. A line that sets a parameter has the format: parameter=value A ``#'' is the comment character, and all characters from it to the end of line are ignored. The parameters that are supported are: AUTOMOUNT_TIMEOUT The number of seconds after which an automounted file system will be unmounted if it hasn't been referred to within that period of time. The default is 10 minutes (600 seconds). This is equivalent to the -t option in automount(8). AUTOMOUNT_VERBOSE TRUE or FALSE; if TRUE, automount(8) will print more detailed information about the actions it takes. This is equivalent to the -v option to automount(8). AUTOMOUNTD_VERBOSE TRUE or FALSE; if TRUE, automountd(8) will log to syslogd(8) more detailed information about the actions it takes. This is equivalent to the -v option to automountd(8). AUTOMOUNTD_NOBROWSE TRUE or FALSE; if TRUE, automountd(8) will disable browsing of all maps. This is equivalent to the -n option to automountd(8). AUTOMOUNTD_TRACE The trace level for logging information about requests received by automountd(8) from autofs, processing done for those requests, and replies sent to autofs. The default level of 0 causes no information to be logged; each higher value causes more information to be logged. This controls the same trace level that the -T option to automountd(8) controls. The trace is logged to /var/log/system.log AUTOMOUNTD_MNTOPTS A string containing a comma-separated list of mount options that will be applied, by default, to all mounts done by automountd(8). The options for a particular mount can override these options. This controls the same options that the -o option to automountd(8) AUTOMOUNTD_NOSUID TRUE or FALSE; if TRUE, automountd(8) will force all mounts to have the "nosuid" mount option set. AUTOMOUNTD_ENV A string of the form name=value that causes the environment variable name to be set to the value value in automountd(8). Environment variables can be referred to in map entries; the value of the environment variable is substituted for the reference to the variable. This is equivalent to the -D option to automountd(8).

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)
