DISKARBITRATIOND(8)       BSD System Manager's Manual      DISKARBITRATIOND(8)

NAME
     diskarbitrationd -- disk arbitration daemon

SYNOPSIS
     diskarbitrationd [-d]

DESCRIPTION
     diskarbitrationd listens for connections from clients, notifies clients
     of the appearance of disks and filesystems, and governs the mounting of
     filesystems and the claiming of disks amongst clients.

     diskarbitrationd is accessed via the Disk Arbitration framework.

     Options:

     -d       Report detailed information in /var/log/diskarbitrationd.log.
              This option forces diskarbitrationd to run in the foreground.

     The file /etc/fstab is consulted for user-defined mount points, indexed
     by filesystem, in the mount point determination for a filesystem.  Each
     filesystem can be identified by its UUID or by its label, using the con-
     structs ``UUID'' or ``LABEL'', respectively.  For example:

        UUID=DF000C7E-AE0C-3B15-B730-DFD2EF15CB91 /export ufs   ro
        UUID=FAB060E9-79F7-33FF-BE85-E1D3ABD3EDEA none    hfs   rw,noauto
        LABEL=The\040Volume\040Name\040Is\040This none    msdos ro

FILES
     /etc/fstab
     /var/log/diskarbitrationd.log
     /var/run/diskarbitrationd.pid
