.Sh NAME
.Nm mountd
.Nd service remote
.Tn NFS
mount requests
.Sh SYNOPSIS
Obsolete.  See
.Xr nfsd 8 .
.Sh DESCRIPTION
The
.Nm
daemon was formerly the server for
.Tn NFS
mount requests from NFS clients.
This functionality has been moved into the NFS server daemon
.Xr nfsd 8 .
.Pp
Please refer to
.Xr nfsd 8
for NFS server documenation.
.Pp
The following is a list of former
.Nm
options that are now available as
.Xr nfsd 8
options:
.Bl -column -offset indent ".Sy mountd option" ".Sy new nfsd option" ".Sy Description"
.It Sy mountd option Ta Sy nfsd option Ta Sy Description
.It Fl n Ta Fl N Ta allow non-root mounts
.It Fl r Ta Fl R Ta allow regular file mounts
.It Pa exportsfile Ta Fl F Pa exportsfile Ta alternate exports file
.El
.Pp
However, such configuration options are normally specified via
.Xr nfs.conf 5 .
.Pp
When the NFS server is started, it loads the export host addresses and
options into the kernel using the
.Xr nfssvc 2
system call.  After changing the list of exports (either directly or
indirectly via a change in netgroup membership), the administrator
should send a hangup signal to the nfsd daemon to get it to reload
the export information:
.Pp
.Dl "kill \-s HUP `cat /var/run/nfsd.pid`
.Pp
For backwards compatibility, the following should also work:
.Pp
.Dl "kill \-s HUP `cat /var/run/mountd.pid`
.Pp
Any errors encountered while processing the export entries will
be logged via
.Xr syslog 3 .
.Sh FILES
.Bl -tag -width /var/run/mountd.pid -compact
.It Pa /etc/exports
the list of exported filesystems
.It Pa /var/run/mountd.pid
the pid of the currently running mountd
.It Pa /var/run/mountdtab
the current list of outstanding mounts served
.It Pa /var/run/mountdexptab
information about exported file systems
and directories (UUIDs, handles, ...)

utility first appeared in 4.4BSD.
It's functionality was merged into
.Xr nfsd 8
in Darwin 9.
