       share - make local resource available for mounting by remote systems

       FSType] specific_options] description] [pathname]

       The  command  exports,  or  makes  a  resource  available for mounting,
       through a remote file system of type FSType.

       If the option is omitted, the first file system type listed in is  used
       as default.

       For a description of NFS specific options, see share_nfs(1M).

       pathname	 is  the pathname of the directory to be shared.  When invoked
       with no arguments, displays all shared file systems.

       recognizes the following options:

       Specify the file system type.

       The	   specific_options are used to control access of  the	shared
		   resource.   (See  share_nfs(1M)  for NFS specific options.)
		   They may be any of the following:

			is shared read/write to all clients.  This is also the
			default behavior.

		   Share the
			pathname read-mostly if option is not provided.	 Read-
			mostly means read-write to those clients specified and
			read-only  for all other systems.  If a option is pro‐
			vided, pathname	 is  shared  read/write	 only  to  the
			listed clients.	 No other systems can access pathname.

			is shared read-only to all clients.

			is  shared  read-only  only to the listed clients.  No
			other systems can access pathname.

       The	   flag may be used to provide a description of	 the  resource
		   being shared.

   Old terminology (export)
       File  system  sharing  used  to	be  called  on HP-UX, and was used for
       exporting file systems.	With the new  share  NFS  model,  the  command
       replaces exportfs(1M) or

       To  support  compatiblity  with	scripts that still invoke the exportfs
       command using the access= option, the share command will not fail  when
       the  access  option  is	used  and  the	syntax	matches	 the  usage of
       exportfs(1M) from  a  release  of  HP-UX	 that  does  not  support  the
       share(1M)  command.  Attempts  to  use the access option with new share
       options, (i.e. sec=), may result in the access option begin rejected by
       the  share command. It is highly recommended that the access option not
       be used with the share command. Instead, use the ro= and rw= option  to
       achieve	the  desired  access restrictions. This support of the access=
       option will be removed in a future release of HP-UX.

       If commands are invoked multiple times on the  same  file  system,  the
       last  invocation	 supersedes  the previous; the options set by the last
       command replace the old options.	 For example, if read-only  permission
       was previously given to on use the following command to also give read-
       only permission to on

       This behavior is not limited to	sharing	 the  root  file  system,  but
       applies to all file systems.

       The following command wll share the file system read-only.
