 setmnt(1M)							  setmnt(1M)




 NAME
      setmnt - establish the file-system mount table, /etc/mnttab

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/sbin/setmnt

 DESCRIPTION
      The setmnt command creates the /etc/mnttab table (see mnttab(4)),
      which is needed by both the mount and umount commands (see mount(1M)).
      setmnt reads the standard input and creates an entry in /etc/mnttab
      for each line of input.  Input lines have the format:

	   filesys node

      where filesys is the name of the device special file associated with
      the file system (such as /dev/dsk/c0t5d0) and node is the root name of
      that file system.	 Thus filesys and node become the first two strings
      in the mount table entry.

 WARNINGS
      The mount and umount commands rewrite the /etc/mnttab file whenever a
      file system is mounted or unmounted if /etc/mnttab is found to be out
      of date with the mounted file system table maintained internally by
      the HP-UX kernel.	 The syncer command also updates /etc/mnttab if it
      is out of date (see syncer(1M)).

      /etc/mnttab should never be manually edited.  Use of this command to
      write invalid information into /etc/mnttab is strongly discouraged.

      The setmnt command is not intented to be run interactively; input
      should be directed to it from a file (for example, setmnt <&lt&lt&lt;
      /tmp/file.mnt).  If run interactively, terminate input with a ctrl-D.

      setmnt silently enforces an upper limit on the maximum number of
      /etc/mnttab entries.

      It is unwise to use setmnt to create false entries for mount and
      umount.

      This command is obsolete and it may not be available for future
      releases.
