filesys Profile Keyword (Mounting Remote File Systems)

filesys server:path server_address mount_pt_name [[mount_options]]

By using filesys with the listed values, the JumpStart program sets up the installed system to automatically mount remote file systems when the system boots. You can specify filesys more than once.


filesys sherlock:/export/home/user2 - /home

server: – The name of the server where the remote file system is located, followed by a colon.

path – The remote file system's mount–point name. For example, /usr or /export/home.

server_address – The IP address of the server that is specified in server:path. If a name service is not running on the network, the server_address value can be used to populate the /etc/hosts file with the server's host name and IP address. If you are not specifying the server's IP address, you must specify a minus sign (-). For example, if you have a name service that is running on the network, you do not need to specify the server's IP address.

mount_pt_name – The name of the mount point on which the remote file system is to be mounted.

mount_options – One or more mount options, which is the same as the -o option of the mount(1M) command. The mount options are added to the /etc/vfstab entry for the specified mount_pt_name.

Note –

If you need to specify more than one mount option, the mount options must be separated by commas and no spaces (ro,quotafor example).
