mountd(1M)							    mountd(1M)

       mountd,	rpc.mountd  -  server  for  NFS	 mount requests and NFS access


       is an RPC server that answers requests for NFS access  information  and
       file  system mount requests.  It reads the file to determine which file
       systems are available for  mounting  by	which  remote  machines.   See
       sharetab(4).   running  on the local server will contact the first time
       an NFS client tries to access the file system to determine whether  the
       client should get read-write, read-only, or no access.  This access can
       be dependent on the security mode used in  the  remote  procedure  call
       from the client.	 See share_nfs(1M).

       The  command  also  provides  information  as  to what file systems are
       mounted by which clients.  This information can be  printed  using  the
       showmount(1M) command.

       The daemon is automatically invoked if and in

       Only superuser can run the daemon.

       The following options are supported:

	      This  is	an obsolete option. All messages and errors are logged

	      Reject mount requests from clients. Clients that have file  sys‐
			  mounted will not be affected.

	      Specify tracing level
			  n, where n can have one of the following values:

			  Errors only (default).
			  Errors, requests handled by mountd, results, and the
			  names of the
				 main functions leading to the result

	      Run the command in verbose mode.	Each time
			  determines what access a client should get, it  will
			  log  the  result  to the as well as the names of the
			  main functions leading to the result.

       If is running, must also be running in order to be assured that the NFS
       server can respond to requests.

       Some  routines that compare hostnames use case-sensitive string compar‐
       isons; some do not.  If an incoming request fails, verify that the case
       of  the hostname in the file to be parsed matches the case of the host‐
       name called for, and attempt the request again.

       If a client crashes, executing on the server will show that the	client
       still  has  a  file  system mounted.  In other words, stale entries may
       accumulate in  for  clients  that  crash	 without  sending  an  unmount

       Also,  if  a  client  mounts  the same remote directory twice, only one
       entry appears in Doing a of one of these directories removes the single
       entry and no longer indicates that the remote directory is mounted.
