NAME

       nfsmount.conf - Configuration file for NFS mounts

SYNOPSIS

       Configuration  file  for  NFS  mounts  that  allows  options  to be set
       globally, per server or per mount point.

DESCRIPTION

       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  [  and  ]  branches.   Variables  are  assignment
       statements  that  assign  values  to  particular  variables using the =
       operator, as in Proto=Tcp.  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  "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 command.

       [ 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 command.

EXAMPLES

       These  are some example lines of how sections and variables are defined
       in the configuration file.

       [ NFSMount_Global_Options ]
           Proto=Tcp

              The TCP protocol will be used on every NFS mount.

       [ Server "nfsserver.foo.com" ]
           rsize=32k
           wsize=32k

              A 33k (32768 bytes) block size will be  used  as  the  read  and
              write size on all mounts to the 'nfsserver.foo.com' server.

        [ MountPoint "/export/home" ]
           Background=True

              All mounts to the '/export/home' export will be performed in the
                     background (i.e. done asynchronously).
