mount attaches an MS-DOS file system (pcfs) to the file system hierarchy at the mount_point, which is the pathname of a directory. If mount_point has any contents prior to the mount operation, these are hidden until the file system is unmounted.
If mount is invoked with special or mount_point as the only arguments, mount will search /etc/vfstab to fill in the missing arguments, including the FSType-specific_options; see mount(1M) for more details.
The special argument can be one of two special device file types:
A floppy disk, such as /dev/diskette0 or /dev/diskette1.
A DOS logical drive on a hard disk expressed as device-name:logical-drive, where device-name specifies the special block device-file for the whole disk and logical-drive is either a drive letter (c through z) or a drive number (1 through 24). Examples are /dev/dsk/c0t0d0p0:c and /dev/dsk/c0t0d0p0:1.
The special device file type must have a formatted MS-DOS file system with either a 12-bit, 16-bit, or 32-bit File Allocation Table.
Security attributes can be specified at mount time, with the -o or -S option on the mount command line or in the vfstab_adjunct(4) file. See the DESCRIPTION in the mount man page for more about specifying security attributes.
To succeed, the mount command must have the sys_mount privilege. Mandatory and discretionary read access is required to both the mount point and the device being mounted; to override MAC and DAC restrictions requires privilege as described in Intro(2). To succeed in all cases, mount –F pcfs
See mount(1M) for the list of supported options.
Specify pcfs file system specific options. Most attributes for the -S option may also be specified for the -o option. See the -S option.
Mount the file system read/write or read-only. The default is rw.
Force uppercase characters in filenames to lowercase when reading them from the filesystem. This is for compatibility with the previous behavior of pcfs. The default is nofoldcase.
See the definition of the -S option in the OPTIONS section of the mount(1M) man page.

Except when merely listing mounted file systems and resources, mount must run with the

Mount-time security attributes can be specified for file systems whose objects do not have any attributes (such as user and group IDs) and for file systems that do not have the Trusted Solaris extended security attributes (such as sensitivity labels).

See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:
If the directory on which a file system is to be mounted is a symbolic link, the file system is mounted on the directory to which the symbolic link refers, rather than on top of the symbolic link itself.
