      mountd - NFS mount request server

      /usr/sbin/rpc.mountd [-l log_file] [-t n] [-p]

      mountd is an RPC server that answers file system mount requests.	It
      reads file /etc/xtab (described in exports(4)) to determine which
      directories are available to which machines.  It also provides
      information on what file systems are mounted by which clients.  This
      information can be printed using the showmount command (see

      rpc.mountd can be started at boot time by setting the variable
      NFS_SERVER to 1 in the file /etc/rc.config.d/nfsconf.

      mountd recognizes the following options:

	   -l log_file Log any errors to the named log file, log_file.
		       Errors are not logged if the -l option is not

		       The information logged to the file includes the date
		       and time of the error, the host name, process ID and
		       name of the function generating the error, and the
		       error message.  Note that different services can
		       share a single log file since enough information is
		       included to uniquely identify each error.

	   -p	       Run from unreserved ports. This option restores the
		       old default behavior on HP-UX. The default has been
		       changed for the mount daemon to run from reserved
		       ports unless this option is set.

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

			    1	 Errors only (default)
			    2	 Errors, mount requests and mount failures

      The default behavior of the mount daemon is to run from reserved
      ports.  If the daemon needs to be run from unreserved ports, use the
      -p option.

      If a client crashes, executing showmount on the server will show that
      the client still has a file system mounted; i.e., the client's entry
      is not removed from /etc/rmtab until the client reboots and executes
      umount -a (see showmount(1M)).

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

      mountd was developed by Sun Microsystems, Inc.
