MOUNT_AUTOFS(8)         NetBSD System Manager's Manual         MOUNT_AUTOFS(8)


NAME
mount_autofs -- mount automounter filesystem
SYNOPSIS
mount_autofs [-f from] [-O master_options] [-o options] [-p master_prefix] autofs mount_point
DESCRIPTION
The mount_autofs command should not usually be called by admins. Use automount(8) instead. autofs(5) is mountable using automount(8), which incorporates an auto_master(5) parser, without having to specify autofs(5) mount options via command line. The mount_autofs command attaches the automounter filesystem on the autofs device on to the file system tree at point mount_point. Both autofs and mount_point are converted to absolute paths before use. This command is normally executed by automount(8). The options are as follows: -f Set the from location for autofs(5). This argument is usually read from /etc/auto_master by automount(8). -o Set the mount options. See the mount(8) man page for possible options and their meanings. -O Set the autofs(5) options. See the [-options] in AUTO_MASTER SYNTAX of auto_master(5). -p Set the autofs(5) prefix, below which the file system(s) will be mounted.
