pfs_mountd, pfs_mountd.rpc - PFS mount request server
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
-v Verbose. Show version number, etc.
pfs_mountd was developed by Young Minds, Inc.
