hwo to find shared filesystem and local filesystem in AIX


I wanted to find out that in my database server which filesystems are shared storage and which filesystems are local. Like when I use df -k, it shows "filesystem" and "mounted on" but I want to know which one is shared and which one is local.

Please tell me the commands which I can run through oracle user.

You can either 'cat' /etc/filesystems, invoke 'mount' or call "showmount -a"

Tks for the reply.
command cat /etc/filesystems worked from oracle user.
PLZ guide me how to find which filesystem is shared or local.
I noticed few have mount = automatic and few mount=true
(is this the correct criteria)

Thanks for your patience and help.
