nsmount(1M)							   nsmount(1M)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     nsmount - mount name service filesystem

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     nsmount [-vx][-d mountpoint] [-i pid] -p port

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

     -d	mountpoint
	       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
	       process startup.

     -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.
