MOUNT.NFS(8) System Manager's Manual MOUNT.NFS(8)
mount.nfs, mount.nfs4 - mount a Network File System
mount.nfs remotetarget dir [-rvVwfnsh ] [-o options]
mount.nfs is a part of nfs(5) utilities package, which provides NFS client functionality.
mount.nfs is meant to be used by the mount(8) command for mounting NFS shares. This subcommand, however, can also be used as a standalone
command with limited functionality.
mount.nfs4 is used for mounting NFSv4 file system, while mount.nfs is used to mount NFS file systems versions 3 or 2. remotetarget is a
server share usually in the form of servername:/path/to/share. dir is the directory on which the file system is to be mounted.
-r Mount file system readonly.
-v Be verbose.
-V Print version.
-w Mount file system read-write.
-f Fake mount. Don't actually call the mount system call.
-n Do not update /etc/mtab. By default, an entry is created in /etc/mtab for every mounted file system. Use this option to skip making
-s Tolerate sloppy mount options rather than fail.
-h Print help message.
Refer to nfs(5) or mount(8) manual pages.
For further information please refer nfs(5) and mount(8) manual pages.
