       automountd - autofs mount/unmount daemon

       automountd [-Tvn] [-D name=value]

       automountd  is an RPC server that answers file system mount and unmount
       requests from the autofs file system. It uses local files or name  ser‐
       vice  maps  to  locate  file  systems  to  be  mounted.	These maps are
       described with the automount(1M) command.

       If automount finds any non-trivial entries in either the local or  dis‐
       tributed	 automount  maps and if the daemon is not running already, the
       automountd daemon is automatically  invoked  by	automount(1M).	 auto‐
       mountd  enables	the svc:/network/nfs/nlockmgr service (lockd(1M)), and
       the svc:/network/nfs/status service (statd(1M)), if NFS mounts need  to
       be done.

       At  startup, the automountd daemon is invoked as is invoked as the sys‐
       tem/filesystem/autofs:default service. See NOTES.

       The following options are supported:

       -D name=value
			Assign value to the indicated automount map  substitu‐
			tion  variable.	  These	 assignments cannot be used to
			substitute variables in the master map auto_master.

			Turn off browsing for all autofs  mount	 points.  This
			option	overrides the -browse autofs map option on the
			local host.

			Trace. Expand each RPC call  and  display  it  on  the
			standard output.

			Verbose. Log status messages to the console.

       See largefile(5) for the description of the behavior of automountd when
       encountering files greater than or equal to 2 Gbyte ( 2^31 bytes).

			      Master map for automounter.

			      Supplies default values for parameters for auto‐
			      mount and automountd. See autofs(4).

       The automountd service is managed by the service	 management  facility,
       smf(5), under the service identifier:


       Administrative actions on this service, such as enabling, disabling, or
       requesting restart, can be performed using  svcadm(1M).	The  service's
       status  can  be queried using svcs(1). If it is disabled, it is enabled
       by automount(1M) unless the application/auto_enable property is set  to
