NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     exportfs -	export and unexport directories	to NFS clients

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/etc/exportfs [ -aiuv ] [ -o options ]	[ directory ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     exportfs makes a local directory (or file)	available for mounting over
     the network by NFS	clients.  It is	normally invoked at boot time by the
     /etc/init.d/network script, and uses information contained	in the
     /etc/exports file to export a directory (which must be specified as a
     full pathname).  The superuser can	run exportfs at	any time to alter the
     list or characteristics of	exported directories.  Directories that	are
     currently exported	 are listed in the file	/etc/xtab.

     With no options or	arguments, exportfs prints out the list	of directories
     currently exported.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -a	  All.	Export all directories listed in /etc/exports, or if -u	is
	  specified, unexport all of the currently exported directories.

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

     -u	  Unexport the indicated directories.

     -i	  Ignore the options in	/etc/exports.  Normally, exportfs consults
	  /etc/exports for the options associated with the exported directory.

     -o	options
	  Specify a comma-separated list of optional characteristics for the
	  directory being exported.  options are described in exports(4).

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

     /etc/exports      static export information
     /etc/xtab	       current state of	exported directories

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     exports(4), netgroup(4), showmount(1M).

WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     You cannot	export a directory that	is either a parent- or a sub-directory
     of	one that is currently exported and within the same filesystem.	It
     would be illegal, for example, to export both /usr	and /usr/local if both
     directories resided in the	same disk partition.

     Extremely long export lists (hundreds of hosts or netgroups for a single
     exported directory) may cause mount requests for that exported directory
     to	time out.
