MOUNT.NFS(8)                System Manager's Manual               MOUNT.NFS(8)



NAME
       mount.nfs, mount.nfs4 - mount a Network File System

SYNOPSIS
       mount.nfs remotetarget dir [-rvVwfnsh ] [-o options]

DESCRIPTION
       mount.nfs is a part of nfs(5) utilities package, which provides NFS
       client functionality.

       mount.nfs is meant to be used by the mount(8) command for mounting NFS
       shares. This subcommand, however, can also be used as a standalone
       command with limited functionality.

       remotetarget is a server share usually in the form of
       servername:/path/to/share.  dir is the directory on which the file
       system is to be mounted.

       Under Linux 2.6.32 and later kernel versions, mount.nfs can mount all
       NFS file system versions.  Under earlier Linux kernel versions,
       mount.nfs4 must be used for mounting NFSv4 file systems while mount.nfs
       must be used for NFSv3 and v2.


OPTIONS
       -r     Mount file system readonly.

       -v     Be verbose.

       -V     Print version.

       -w     Mount file system read-write.

       -f     Fake mount. Don't actually call the mount system call.

       -n     Do not update /etc/mtab.  By default, an entry is created in
              /etc/mtab for every mounted file system. Use this option to skip
              making an entry.

       -s     Tolerate sloppy mount options rather than fail.

       -h     Print help message.
