How to Mount All File Systems From a Server

The automatic mirror mount facility enables a client to access all available file systems shared using NFS from a server after one mount from that server has succeeded. The mirror mount occurs automatically and you only need to access the file system. For more information, see How Mirror Mounts Work.

  1. Become an administrator.

    For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.4.

  2. Mount the root of the exported namespace of the server.

    This command mirrors the file system hierarchy from the server on the client. In this example, a /mnt/export/share/local directory structure is created.

    # mount bee:/ /mnt
  3. Access a file system.

    This command or any other command that accesses the file system causes the file system to be mounted.

    # cd /mnt/export/share/local
