 mountd(1M)                                                       mountd(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      mountd, rpc.mountd - NFS mount request server

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/sbin/rpc.mountd [-l log_file] [-t n]

    Obsolescent Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/sbin/rpc.mountd [-p]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      mountd is an RPC server that answers file system mount requests.  It
      reads file /etc/xtab (described in exports(4)) to determine which
      directories are available to which machines.  It also provides
      information on what file systems are mounted by which clients.  This
      information can be printed using the showmount command (see

      rpc.mountd can be started at boot time by setting the variable
      NFS_SERVER to 1 in the file /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf.

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      mountd recognizes the following options:

           -l log_file Log any errors to the named log file, log_file.
                       Errors are not logged if the -l option is not

                       The information logged to the file includes the date
                       and time of the error, the host name, process ID and
                       name of the function generating the error, and the
                       error message.  Note that different services can
                       share a single log file since enough information is
                       included to uniquely identify each error.

           -p          This is an obsolete option.

           -tn         Specify tracing level n , where n can have one of the
                       following values:

                            1    Errors only (default)
                            2    Errors, mount requests and mount failures

 WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]
      If a client crashes, executing showmount on the server will show that
      the client still has a file system mounted; i.e., the client's entry
      is not removed from /etc/rmtab until the client reboots and executes
      umount -a (see showmount(1M)).

      Also, if a client mounts the same remote directory twice, only one
      entry appears in /etc/rmtab.  Doing a umount of one of these
      directories removes the single entry and showmount no longer indicates
