This daemon handles the mounting and unmounting requests from the autofs service. The syntax of the command is as follows:
automountd [ -Tnv ] [ -D name=value ]
The command behaves in the following ways:
-T enables tracing.
-n disables browsing on all autofs nodes.
-v selects to log all status messages to the console.
-D name=value substitutes value for the automount map variable that is indicated by name.
The default value for the automount map is /etc/auto_master. Use the -T option for troubleshooting.
