rmtab(4)                         File Formats                         rmtab(4)



NAME
       rmtab - remote mounted file system table

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/rmtab

DESCRIPTION
       rmtab  contains a table of filesystems that are remotely mounted by NFS
       clients. This file is maintained by mountd(1M), the mount  daemon.  The
       data  in  this  file should be obtained only from  mountd(1M) using the
       MOUNTPROC_DUMP remote procedure call.

       The file contains a line  of  information  for  each  remotely  mounted
       filesystem. There are a number of lines of the form:


       hostname:fsname


       The  mount  daemon  adds an entry for any client that successfully exe-
       cutes a mount request  and  deletes  the  appropriate  entries  for  an
       unmount request.

       Lines  beginning  with a hash (' #') are commented out. These lines are
       removed from the file by mountd(1M) when it  first  starts  up.   Stale
       entries  may  accumulate  for  clients  that  crash  without sending an
       unmount request.
