nsmount - mount name service filesystem
nsmount [-vx][-d mountpoint] [-i pid] -p port
nsmount attaches the filesystem provided by the nsd(1M) daemon. Nsd
satisfies the requests using directory service protocols and caches them
in memory then provides the data as a filesystem using the nfs(4)
protocol. There may be no actual remote filesystem containing the data.
This command is executed directly by the nsd daemon so there is rarely
any need for it to be run separately.
Uses the given local directory as the mountpoint for the
filesystem. The default is /ns. The name service API routines
ns_lookup(3C) and ns_list(3C) expect there to be a /ns
filesystem mounted which provides any remote name service data,
so changing the mountpoint should be done with care.
-i pid This is the process ID of the nsd process supplying the data.
Nsmount will register an exitop for this process which marks
this mount as stale if the nsd daemon should die. Any requests
subsequently made to this filesystem will timeout immediately.
The pid defaults to the parent process ID.
-p port This specifies the port on which nsd is listening on the local
host. This is logged with syslogd(1M) as part of the nsd
-v This option enables verbose mode.
-x This option specifies that the SGI extended attribute protocol
should be supported. This makes nsd extended attributes
available using the attr command.
