exportfs - export and unexport directories to NFS clients
/usr/etc/exportfs [ -aiuv ] [ -o options ] [ directory ]
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
-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.
Specify a comma-separated list of optional characteristics for the
directory being exported. options are described in exports(4).
/etc/exports static export information
/etc/xtab current state of exported directories
exports(4), netgroup(4), showmount(1M).
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.
