NAME

       mount.zfs - mount a ZFS filesystem

SYNOPSIS

       mount.zfs [-sfnvh] [-o options] dataset mountpoint

DESCRIPTION

       mount.zfs  is  part  of  the  zfsutils  package  for Linux. It is a helper program that is
       usually invoked by the mount(8) or zfs(8) commands to mount a ZFS dataset.

       All options are handled according to the FILESYSTEM INDEPENDENT MOUNT OPTIONS  section  in
       the mount(8) manual, except for those described below.

       The  dataset  parameter  is  a  ZFS  filesystem name, as output by the zfs list -H -o name
       command. This parameter never has a leading slash character and is not a device name.

       The mountpoint parameter is the path name of a directory.

OPTIONS

       -s     Ignore bad or sloppy mount options.

       -f     Do a fake mount; do not perform the mount operation.

       -n     Do not update the /etc/mtab file.

       -v     Increase verbosity.

       -h     Print the usage message.

       -o context
              This flag sets the SELinux context for all  files  in  the  filesystem  under  that
              mountpoint.

       -o fscontext
              This flag sets the SELinux context for the filesystem being mounted.

       -o defcontext
              This flag sets the SELinux context for unlabeled files.

       -o rootcontext
              This flag sets the SELinux context for the root inode of the filesystem.

       -o legacy
              This private flag indicates that the dataset has an entry in the /etc/fstab file.

       -o noxattr
              This private flag disables extended attributes.

       -o xattr
              This  private flag enables directory-based extended attributes and, if appropriate,
              adds a ZFS context to the selinux system policy.

       -o saxattr
              This private flag enables  system  attributed-based  extended  attributes  and,  if
              appropriate, adds a ZFS context to the selinux system policy.

       -o dirxattr
              Equivalent to xattr.

       -o zfsutil
              This private flag indicates that mount(8) is being called by the zfs(8) command.

NOTES

       ZFS  conventionally  requires  that  the  mountpoint  be an empty directory, but the Linux
       implementation inconsistently enforces the requirement.

       The mount.zfs helper does not mount the contents of zvols.

FILES

       /etc/fstab        The static filesystem table.

       /etc/mtab         The mounted filesystem table.
