 NAME
      automountd - autofs mount/unmount daemon

 SYNOPSIS
      automountd[-Tv] [-D name=value]

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

      The automountd daemon is automatically invoked if the AUTOFS variable
      and the AUTOMOUNT variable are set to 1 in /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf.

    Options
      -T   Trace.  Expand each RPC call and display it to
	   /var/adm/automount.log.

      -v   Verbose.  Log status messages to /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log.

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

    Tracing
      While automountd is running, the signal SIGUSR2 can be sent to
      automountd to turn tracing on. It logs messages in
      /var/adm/automount.log.  To turn tracing off, send the signal SIGUSR2
      again.

    The automount Daemon
      In some releases of HP-UX, there are two versions of automount, autofs
      and the old automounter.	They are both documented in automount(1M).
      To use autofs instead of the old automount daemon, set the AUTOFS
      variable to 1 in /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf.

 EXIT STATUS
      automountd returns:

	   0 successful

	   1 failure

 EXAMPLES
      To turn on tracing, enter:

	   /usr/lib/netsvc/fs/autofs/automountd -T
