 pfs_mountd(1M)						      pfs_mountd(1M)




 NAME
      pfs_mountd, pfs_mountd.rpc - PFS mount request server

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/etc/pfs_mountd

 DESCRIPTION
      This program is available with the Portable File System Package (PFS).
      pfs_mountd is an RPC server that answers file system mount requests.
      In the case of remote mount requests, it reads the file /etc/pfs_xtab,
      described in pfs_exports(5), to determine which file systems are
      available for mounting by which machines.

      It is recommended that the pfs_mountd daemon be invoked by rc(1M).  It
      must be invoked in the background.

      The pfs mount daemon is composed of two programs: pfs_mountd and
      pfs_mountd.rpc.  The pfs_mountd.rpc program should not be run
      directly.	 It is invoked by the pfs_mountd program.

      The mount daemon assigns servers to mounted file systems in a
      round-robin fashion.  For example, if there are four pfs daemons, and
      four pfs_mount's are performed, each daemon will be serving a
      different mount.

    Options
      -v   Verbose.  Show version number, etc.
