       nfsd - NFS daemon

       #_conn] listen_backlog] protocol] device] [nservers]

       is  the	daemon	that  handles client file system requests.  Only users
       with sufficient privileges can run this daemon.

       The daemon is automatically invoked if and in the file.

       By default, starts over the TCP and UDP transports for  version	2  and
       version	3,  and	 over  TCP for version 4, if NFS version 4 is enabled.
       One can change this with the option.

       A previously invoked daemon started with or  without  options  must  be
       stopped before invoking another command.

       Administrators  wanting	to  change  startup parameters for should make
       changes (as root user) to the NFS default file (see nfs(4)).   Adminis‐
       trators can either edit this file or use the command to make changes.

       The following options are supported:
	      Start a NFS daemon over all available connectionless and connec‐
	      tion-oriented transports, including UDP and TCP.	Equivalent  to
	      setting the parameter to in the NFS default file.

	      This sets the maximum number of connections allowed to the NFS
		     server  over connection-oriented transports.  By default,
		     the number of connections is  unlimited.	Equivalent  to
		     the parameter in the NFS default file.

	      Set connection
		     queue  length  for the NFS TCP over a connection-oriented
		     transport.	 The default value is 32 entries.   Equivalent
		     to the parameter in the NFS default file.

	      Start a NFS daemon over the specified protocol.
		     Equivalent to the parameter in the NFS default file.

	      Start  a	NFS  daemon  for  the transport specified by the given
		     Equivalent to the parameter in the NFS default file.

       The following operands are supported:
	      This sets the maximum number of concurrent NFS requests that the
	      server  can  handle.   This  concurrency	is  achieved  by up to
	      nservers threads created as  needed  in  the  kernel.   nservers
	      should  be based on the load expected on this server.  16 is the
	      usual number of nservers.	 If nservers  is  not  specified,  the
	      maximum  number  of  concurrent  NFS requests will default to 1.
	      Changing the value of nservers requires stopping and  restarting
	      Equivalent to the parameter in the NFS default file.

       A  directory  service that provides service name data base support must
       have the following service entries in its database:

       If the kernel tunable (see nfs_portmon(5)) is set to  1,	 then  clients
       are  required  to  use  privileged  ports  (ports < IPPORT_RESERVED) to
       receive NFS services.  This tunable is set to 0 by default.   Use  (see
       kctune(1M)) to set this tunable.

       By default, the NFS version 4 server is disabled. In order to enable it
       you must stop the NFS server.  As root, either  use  the	 command  (see
       setoncenv(1M)) or edit to set the parameter to 4.

       Daemon started successfully.
       Daemon failed to start.

       Manually	 starting  and restarting is not recommended.  If it is neces‐
       sary to do so, use the NFS server start/stop script

       client machine pointer to an open-but-unlinked file.

       shell script for starting

       startup parameters for

       directories used by the server to manage client state
	      information; these directories should not be removed.
