nfsmount.conf - Configuration file for NFS mounts
Configuration file for NFS mounts that allows options to be set globally, per
server or per mount point.
The configuration file is made up of multiple sections followed by variables
associated with that section. A section is defined by a string enclosed by
branches. Variables are assignment statements that
assign values to particular variables using the =
operator, as in
. The variables that can be assigned are exactly the set of
NFS specific mount options listed in nfs
Sections are broken up into three basic categories: Global options, Server
options and Mount Point options.
NFSMount_Global_Options ] - This statically named section defines all of
the global mount options that can be applied to every NFS mount.
“Server_Name” ] - This section defines all the mount options
that should be used on mounts to a particular NFS server. The
“Server_Name” strings needs to be surrounded by
'“' and be an exact match of the server name used in the mount
MountPoint “Mount_Point” ] - This section defines all the
mount options that should be used on a particular mount point. The
“Mount_Point” string needs to be surrounded by '“'
and be an exact match of the mount point used in the mount
These are some example lines of how sections and variables are defined in the
[ NFSMount_Global_Options ]
protocol will be used on every NFS mount.
[ Server “nfsserver.foo.com” ]
A 32k (32768 bytes) block size will be used as
the read and write size on all mounts to the 'nfsserver.foo.com' server.
UDP/IPv6 is the protocol to be used.
[ MountPoint “/export/home” ]
All mounts to
the '/export/home' export will be performed in the background (i.e. done
