automountd - autofs mount/unmount daemon


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. The automountd daemon is automatically invoked in run level 2.


-T Trace. Expand each RPC call and display it on the standard output. -v Verbose. Log status messages to the console. -n Turn off browsing for all autofs mount points. This option overrides the -browse autofs map option on the local host. -D name=value Assign value to the indicated automount map substitu- tion variable. These assignments cannot be used to substitute variables in the master map auto_master.


See largefile(5) for the description of the behavior of automountd when encountering files greater than or equal to 2 Gbyte ( 2**31 bytes).
