       mount.nfs, mount.nfs4 - mount a Network File System


       mount.nfs remotetarget dir [-rvVwfnsh ] [-o options]


       mount.nfs is a part of nfs(5) utilities package, which provides NFS client functionality.

       mount.nfs  is  meant  to  be  used  by  the mount(8) command for mounting NFS shares. This
       subcommand, however, can also be used as a standalone command with limited functionality.

       remotetarget is a server share usually in the form of servername:/path/to/share.   dir  is
       the directory on which the file system is to be mounted.

       Under  Linux  2.6.32  and  later  kernel versions, mount.nfs can mount all NFS file system
       versions.  Under earlier Linux kernel versions, mount.nfs4 must be used for mounting NFSv4
       file systems while mount.nfs must be used for NFSv3 and v2.


       -r     Mount file system readonly.

       -v     Be verbose.

       -V     Print version.

       -w     Mount file system read-write.

       -f     Fake mount. Don't actually call the mount system call.

       -n     Do  not  update  /etc/mtab.  By default, an entry is created in /etc/mtab for every
              mounted file system. Use this option to skip making an entry.

       -s     Tolerate sloppy mount options rather than fail.

       -h     Print help message.

              Refer to nfs(5) or mount(8) manual pages.


       For further information please refer nfs(5) and mount(8) manual pages.
