AUTOMOUNT(8)            NetBSD System Manager's Manual            AUTOMOUNT(8)

NAME
     automount -- update autofs mounts

SYNOPSIS
     automount [-cfLuv] [-D name=value] [-o options]

DESCRIPTION
     When called without options, the automount command parses the
     auto_master(5) configuration file and any direct maps that it references,
     and mounts or unmounts autofs(5) file systems to match.  These options
     are available:

     -c  Flush caches, discarding possibly stale information obtained from
         maps and directory services.

     -D  Define a variable.  It is only useful with -L.

     -f  Force unmount, to be used with -u.

     -L  Do not mount or unmount anything.  Instead parse auto_master(5) and
         any direct maps, then print them to standard output.  When specified
         more than once, all the maps, including indirect ones, will be parsed
         and shown.  This is useful when debugging configuration problems.

     -o  Specify mount options to be used along with the ones specified in the
         maps.  It is only useful with -L.

     -u  Try to unmount file systems mounted by automountd(8).  autofs(5)
         mounts are not unmounted.  To unmount all autofs(5) mounts, use
         umount -At autofs.

     -v  Increase verbosity.

EXIT STATUS
     The automount utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

EXAMPLES
     Unmount all file systems mounted by automountd(8):

           automount -u
