The showmount command displays information about file systems that have been remotely mounted or are available for mounting. You use the –e option to list the shared file systems. For example:
$ /usr/sbin/showmount -e bee export list for bee: /export/share/local (everyone) /export/home tulip,lilac /export/home2 rose
For information about other options, see the showmount(1M) man page.
In some environments, information about shared file systems and the systems that have mounted them should not be displayed. You can set the showmount_info property of the sharectl command to none, which ensures that the client cannot view the following file system information:
Information about file systems that the client cannot access
Information about all the shared file systems
Information about other systems that have mounted the file systems
bee$ sharectl set -p showmount_info=none nfs
The following information is displayed on the client rose:
$ /usr/sbin/showmount -e bee export list for bee: /export/share/local (everyone) /export/home2 rose
The information about the /export/home file system is no longer displayed.
