mountd - NFS mount/umount request server
/usr/etc/rpc.mountd [ -nlr ]
mountd is an rpc(4) server that answers rpc filesystem mount/umount
requests. One such sender of the requests is autofs. mountd reads the
file /etc/xtab (described in exportfs(1M)) to determine which filesystems
are available to which machines and users. It also provides information
as to which clients have filesystems mounted. This information is stored
in the servers /etc/rmtab file and can be accessed using the
The mountd daemon is normally invoked by inetd(1M).
-n port Normally, mountd only accepts requests from clients using
a privileged (i.e. secure) port. This option disables
this check and allows mountd to accept requests from any
-l seconds By default when started via inetd, if mountd has not
serviced any requests in 60 seconds it will terminate.
This option can be used to adjust the time period. The
minimum period is 1 second. If set to a value too large,
your /etc/rmtab file will possibly grow bigger than you
would like because of the way it is managed.
-r Remove entries thought to be corrupted from the /etc/rmtab
file. If you have host names with pound (#) signs in them
or exported paths with pound signs or colons (:) do not
use this option.
