na_rmtab - Remote mounted file system table




/etc/rmtab maintains the list of client mount points between server reboots. The list of client mount points can be obtained by using the MOUNTPROC_DUMP remote procedure call, or by using the UNIX showmount(1) command. When the server successfully executes a mount request from a client, the server appends a new entry to the file. When the client issues an unmount request, the corresponding entry is marked as unused. When the server reboots, unused entries are deleted from the file.


Entries may become stale if clients crash without sending an unmount request. The file may be removed before rebooting the server in which case the server will lose information about any active client mount entries on reboot.
