automountd -- automatic mount / unmount daemon for autofs SYNOPSIS
/usr/libexec/automountd [-v] [-n] [-T] [-o opts] [-D name=value] DESCRIPTION
automountd is a daemon that responds to requests from autofs to mount and unmount network filesystems, and to supply the contents of directo- ries, based on the contents of automounter maps. The automountd is started on demand by launchd(8). As the daemon is launched by launchd, the options below would be specified in the ProgramArguments key in the launchd plist for automountd. See FILES below. OPTIONS
-v Log to syslogd(8) more detailed information about actions taken by automountd. -n Disable browsing of all maps. -T Increase by 1 the logging level for messages printed to the standard output information about requests received from autofs, process- ing 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. -o opts Apply the options specified by opts to all mounts by default. The options for a particular mount can override these options. -D name=value Set the environment value specified by name to the specified value. Environment variables can be referred to in map entries; the value of the environment variable is substituted for the reference to the variable. FILES

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)
