autofs.conf(5)              BSD File Formats Manual             autofs.conf(5)


NAME

     autofs.conf -- automount(8) and automountd(8) configuration file


DESCRIPTION

     The autofs.conf file specifies various configuration options for
     automount(8) and automountd(8).

     autofs.conf consists of a series of lines, each of which may contain a
     line that sets a parameter, a comment, or a blank line.

     A line that sets a parameter has the format:
           parameter=value
     A ``#'' is the comment character, and all characters from it to the end
     of line are ignored.

     The parameters that are supported are:

     AUTOMOUNT_TIMEOUT
                   The number of seconds after which an automounted file sys-
                   tem will be unmounted if it hasn't been referred to within
                   that period of time.  The default is 10 minutes (600 sec-
                   onds).  This is equivalent to the -t option in
                   automount(8).

     AUTOMOUNT_VERBOSE
                   TRUE or FALSE; if TRUE, automount(8) will print more
                   detailed information about the actions it takes.  This is
                   equivalent to the -v option to automount(8).

     AUTOMOUNTD_VERBOSE
                   TRUE or FALSE; if TRUE, automountd(8) will log to
                   syslogd(8) more detailed information about the actions it
                   takes.  This is equivalent to the -v option to
                   automountd(8).

     AUTOMOUNTD_NOBROWSE
                   TRUE or FALSE; if TRUE, automountd(8) will disable browsing
                   of all maps.  This is equivalent to the -n option to
                   automountd(8).

     AUTOMOUNTD_TRACE
                   The trace level for logging information about requests
                   received by automountd(8) from autofs, processing done for
                   those requests, and replies sent to autofs.  The default
                   level of 0 causes no information to be logged; each higher
                   value causes more information to be logged.  This controls
                   the same trace level that the -T option to automountd(8)
                   controls.  The trace is logged to /var/log/system.log

     AUTOMOUNTD_MNTOPTS
                   A string containing a comma-separated list of mount options
                   that will be applied, by default, to all mounts done by
                   automountd(8).  The options for a particular mount can
                   override these options.  This controls the same options
                   that the -o option to automountd(8)

     AUTOMOUNTD_NOSUID
                   TRUE or FALSE; if TRUE, automountd(8) will force all mounts
                   to have the "nosuid" mount option set.

     AUTOMOUNTD_ENV
                   A string of the form
                         name=value
                   that causes the environment variable name to be set to the
                   value value in automountd(8).  Environment variables can be
                   referred to in map entries; the value of the environment
                   variable is substituted for the reference to the variable.
                   This is equivalent to the -D option to automountd(8).
