Example--Creating a LOFS File System at Boot Time

You can set up the system to automatically create a LOFS file system when it boots by adding an entry to the end of the /etc/vfstab file. The following example shows an entry in the /etc/vfstab file that will create a LOFS file system for the root (/) file system on /tmp/newroot.

/ - /tmp/newroot  lofs   -  yes  -

Caution - Caution -

Make sure the loopback entries are the last entries in the /etc/vfstab file. Otherwise, if the /etc/vfstab entry for a loopback file system precedes the file systems to be included in it, the loopback file system cannot be created.

For more information the /etc/vfstab file, see "The /etc/vfstab Field Descriptions".
