 pfs_exportfs(1M)                                           pfs_exportfs(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      pfs_exportfs - export and unexport directories to PFS clients

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /usr/sbin/pfs_exportfs [ -a -u -v ] [ pathname ]

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      pfs_exportfs makes a local directory or filename available for
      mounting over the network by PFS clients.  It is recommended that a
      command to invoke pfs_exportfs at boot time be added to rc(1M).
      pfs_exportfs uses information contained in the /etc/pfs_exports file
      to export pathname (which must be specified as a full pathname).  The
      superuser can run pfs_exportfs at any time to alter the list or
      characteristics of exported directories and filenames.  Directories
      and files that are currently exported are listed in the file

      With no options or arguments, pfs_exportfs prints out the list of
      directories and filenames currently exported.

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      -a   All.  Export all pathnames listed in /etc/pfs_exports, or if -u
           is specified, unexport all of the currently exported pathnames.

      -u   Unexport the indicated pathnames.

      -v   Verbose.  Print each directory or filename as it is exported or

 WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]
      PFS is obsolete and no longer supported on any HP-UX release.
      Delivery of PFS interfaces will be discontinued in the next HP-UX

      PFS, from Young Minds, Inc. (now defunct), was originally adopted by
      HP to provide accessibility to Rock Ridge Interchange file system
      format on CD-ROM file systems.  The equivalent functionality is now
      provided via the HP-UX CDFS file system type and HP-UX's standard file
      systems commands.

      PFS has known functionality and performance problems.  HP customers
      are urged to stop using the PFS interfaces, including this interface,
      pfs_exportfs.  Customers should move to accessing all CD-ROM file
      system formats by using the standard HP-UX commands, specifying the
      file system type as cdfs.  For example, to mount a CD-ROM file system,

           mount -F cdfs /dev/dsk/c0t0d4 /cdrom

      There is no need to treat the cdfs file system type differently from
      any other file system type, therefore no special daemons or commands
