AUTOFS.CONF(5)		    BSD File Formats Manual		AUTOFS.CONF(5)

NAME
     autofs.confautomount(8) and automountd(8) configuration file

DESCRIPTION
     The autofs.conf file specifies various configuration options for
     automount(8) and automountd(8).

     autofs.conf consists of a series of lines, each of which may contain a
     line that sets a parameter, a comment, or a blank line.

     A line that sets a parameter has the format:
	   parameter=value
     A “#” is the comment character, and all characters from it to the end of
     line are ignored.

     The parameters that are supported are:

     AUTOMOUNT_TIMEOUT
		   The number of seconds after which an automounted file sys‐
		   tem will be unmounted if it hasn't been referred to within
		   that period of time.	 The default is 10 minutes (600 sec‐
		   onds).  This is equivalent to the -t option in
		   automount(8).

     AUTOMOUNT_VERBOSE
		   TRUE or FALSE; if TRUE, automount(8) will print more
		   detailed information about the actions it takes.  This is
		   equivalent to the -v option to automount(8).

     AUTOMOUNTD_VERBOSE
		   TRUE or FALSE; if TRUE, automountd(8) will log to
		   syslogd(8) more detailed information about the actions it
		   takes.  This is equivalent to the -v option to
		   automountd(8).

     AUTOMOUNTD_NOBROWSE
		   TRUE or FALSE; if TRUE, automountd(8) will disable browsing
		   of all maps.	 This is equivalent to the -n option to
		   automountd(8).

     AUTOMOUNTD_TRACE
		   The trace level for logging information about requests
		   received by automountd(8) from autofs, processing done for
		   those requests, and replies sent to autofs.	The default
		   level of 0 causes no information to be logged; each higher
		   value causes more information to be logged.	This controls
		   the same trace level that the -T option to automountd(8)
		   controls.  The trace is logged to /var/log/system.log

     AUTOMOUNTD_MNTOPTS
		   A string containing a comma-separated list of mount options
		   that will be applied, by default, to all mounts done by
		   automountd(8).  The options for a particular mount can
		   override these options.  This controls the same options
		   that the -o option to automountd(8)

     AUTOMOUNTD_NOSUID
		   TRUE or FALSE; if TRUE, automountd(8) will force all mounts
		   to have the "nosuid" mount option set.

     AUTOMOUNTD_ENV
		   A string of the form
			 name=value
		   that causes the environment variable name to be set to the
		   value value in automountd(8).  Environment variables can be
		   referred to in map entries; the value of the environment
		   variable is substituted for the reference to the variable.
		   This is equivalent to the -D option to automountd(8).
