autofs(4)                        File Formats                        autofs(4)



NAME
       autofs  -  file  containing  parameter values for automountd daemon and
       automount command

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/default/autofs

DESCRIPTION
       The autofs file resides in directory /etc/default and supplies  default
       parameters for the automountd(1M) daemon and the automount(1M) command.

       The  autofs  file  format is ASCII; comment lines begin with the cross-
       hatch (#) character. Parameters consist of a  keyword  followed  by  an
       equal sign followed by the parameter value, of the form:

       keyword=value

       As  shipped,  the  parameters  in the autofs file are commented out. As
       root, you must uncomment a keyword-value line to  make  the  value  for
       that parameter take effect.

       Administrators  can  make  changes  to the startup parameters for auto-
       mountd by logging in as root and editing the autofs file. Changes  made
       to  autofs  values  on an automount or automountd command line override
       values in /etc/default/autofs.

       Unlike /etc/init.d/autofs, the /etc/default/autofs  file  is  preserved
       across operating system upgrades.

       The following parameters are currently supported in the autofs file:

       AUTOMOUNT_TIMEOUT=<num>

           Specifies  a  duration, in seconds, that a file system is to remain
           mounted when not in use. The default value  is  600  (10  minutes).
           Equivalent to the -t option in automount.



       AUTOMOUNT_VERBOSE=TRUE | FALSE

           Verbose  mode.  Causes  you  to be notified of non-critical events,
           suchs as autofs mounts and unmounts. The default  value  is  FALSE.
           Equivalent to the -v option in automount.



       AUTOMOUNTD_VERBOSE=TRUE | FALSE

           Verbose  mode.  Causes status messages to be logged to the console.
           The default value is FALSE. Equivalent to the -v  option  in  auto-
           mountd.



       AUTOMOUNTD_NOBROWSE=<num>

           Turn  on  or  off browsing for all autofs mount points. The default
           value is FALSE. Equivalent to the -n option in automountd.



       AUTOMOUNTD_TRACE=<num>

           Expands each RPC call and  displays  it  on  standard  output.  The
           default  value,  0,  turns  off such tracing. Starting with 1, with
           each higher value, the verbosity of trace output increases.



       AUTOMOUNTD_ENV=<name>=<value>

           Environment variables. Each environment variable-value pairing must
           be  on  its own line. You can specify multiple such pairings. There
           are no environment variable settings supplied. For  example:  AUTO-
           MOUNTD_ENV=DAY=TUES
