 pfs_exports(5)                                               pfs_exports(5)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      pfs_exports, pfs_xtab - directories to export to PFS clients

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The /etc/pfs_exports file contains entries for directories that can be
      exported to PFS clients.  This file is read automatically by the
      pfs_exportfs(1M) command.  If you change this file, you must run
      pfs_exportfs(1M) for the changes to affect the daemon's operation.

      It is recommended that you place a command in rc(1M) so that
      pfs_exportfs(1M) is executed at boot time.

      The /etc/pfs_xtab file contains entries for directories that are
      currently exported.  You should not modify this file directly.  Future
      updates to the PFS package will contain libraries for editing this
      file.  (Use the -u option of pfs_exportfs to remove entries from this

      An entry for a directory consists of a line of the following form:

           directory   -option[,option ]...


           directory      is the pathname of a directory (or file).

           option         is one of

                                    Give mount access to each client listed.
                                    A client must be a hostname.  The
                                    default value allows any machine to
                                    mount the given directory.

      A # (pound-sign) anywhere in the file indicates a comment that extends
      to the end of the line.

 EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]
           /usr/local    # export to the world
           /usr2  -access=hermes:zip:tutorial  # export to only these machines

 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      PFS is obsolete and no longer supported on any HP-UX release.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 these
      interfaces, pfs_exports and pfs_xtab.  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, use:

           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
      are required to access the variety of CD-ROM file system formats.

      See mount(1M) and mount_cdfs(1M).
