AUTOFS(4)							     AUTOFS(4)

       autofs  -  file	containing  parameter values for automountd daemon and
       automount command


       The autofs file resides in directory /etc/default and supplies  default
       parameters for the automountd(1M) daemon and the automount(1M) command.

       The  autofs  file  format is ASCII; comment lines begin with the cross‐
       hatch (#) character. Parameters consist of a  keyword  followed	by  an
       equal sign followed by the parameter value, of the form:


       As  shipped,  the  parameters  in the autofs file are commented out. As
       root, you must uncomment a keyword-value line to	 make  the  value  for
       that parameter take effect.

       Administrators  can  make  changes  to the startup parameters for auto‐
       mountd by logging in as root and editing the autofs file. Changes  made
       to  autofs  values  on an automount or automountd command line override
       values in /etc/default/autofs. The  /etc/default/autofs	file  is  pre‐
       served across operating system upgrades.

       The following parameters are currently supported in the autofs file:


	   Specifies  a	 duration, in seconds, that a file system is to remain
	   mounted when not in use. The default value  is  600	(10  minutes).
	   Equivalent to the -t option in automount.


	   Verbose  mode.  Causes  you	to be notified of non-critical events,
	   suchs as autofs mounts and unmounts. The default  value  is	FALSE.
	   Equivalent to the -v option in automount.


	   Verbose   mode.   Causes   status   messages	  to   be   logged  to
	   /var/svc/log/system-filesystem-autofs:default.log.  (See   smf(5).)
	   The	default	 value	is FALSE. Equivalent to the -v option in auto‐


	   Turn on or off browsing for all autofs mount	 points.  The  default
	   value is FALSE. Equivalent to the -n option in automountd.


	   Expands  each  RPC call and logs it to /var/svc/log/system-filesys‐
	   tem-autofs:default.log. (See smf(5).)  The default value, 0,	 turns
	   off such tracing. Starting with 1, with each higher value, the ver‐
	   bosity of trace output increases.


	   Environment variables. Each environment variable-value pairing must
	   be  on  its own line. You can specify multiple such pairings. There
	   are no environment variable settings supplied. For  example:	 AUTO‐
