automountd(1M)automountd(1M)NAMEautomountd - autofs mount/unmount daemon
is an RPC server that answers file system mount and unmount requests
from the filesystem. It uses local files or name service maps to
locate filesystems to be mounted. These maps are described with the
command (see automount(1M)).
The daemon is automatically invoked if the variable is set to 1 in
Trace. Expand each
RPC call and display it to

Force all mounts to the local host to be NFS mounts instead of

Any filesystems that are being managed by should never be manually
mounted or unmounted. Even if the mount or unmount operation appears
to complete successfully, the resulting change of state to the managed
filesystem can lead to disruptive or unpredictable results, including
but not limited to: commands hanging or not returning expected results,
and applications failing due to their dependencies on those mounted
filesystems. A reboot may be necessary to resolve these issues.
