       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  section  headers  followed  by  variable
       assignments  associated  with  that  section.   A  section  header  is defined by a string
       enclosed by [ and ] brackets.  Variable assignments are assignment statements that  assign
       values  to particular variables using the = operator, as in Proto=Tcp.  The variables that
       can be assigned are the set of NFS specific mount options listed in nfs(5)  together  with
       the   filesystem-independant  mount  options  listed  in  mount(8)  and  three  additions:
       Sloppy=True has the same effect as  the  -s  option  to  mount,  and  Foreground=True  and
       Background=True have the same effect as bg and fg.

       Options in the config file may be given in upper, lower, or mixed case and will be shifted
       to lower case before being passed to the filesystem.

       Boolean mount options which do not need an equals sign must  be  given  as  "option=True".
       Instead   of  preceeding  such  an  option  with  "no"  its  negation  must  be  given  as

       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 (ignoring case) 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.  Though
              path names are usually case-sensitive, the Mount_Point name is matched  insensitive
              to case.

       The  sections  are  processed  in  the  reverse of the order listed above, and any options
       already seen, either in a previous section or on the command line, will  be  ignored  when
       seen again.


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

       [ NFSMount_Global_Options ]

              The TCP/IPv4 protocol will be used on every NFS mount.

       [ Server "" ]

              A 32k (32768 bytes) block size will be used as the  read  and  write  size  on  all
              mounts to the '' 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 asynchronously).


                 Default NFS mount configuration file

                 When this directory exists and files ending with ".conf" exist, those files will
                 be  used to set configuration variables. These files will override variables set
                 in /etc/nfsmount.conf
