    Command:

    autofs

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           /etc/init.d/autofs start|stop|restart|reload|status
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           autofs control the operation of the automount(8) daemons running on the
           Linux system. Usually autofs is invoked at system boot  time  with  the
           start  parameter and at shutdown time with the stop parameter. The aut-
           ofs script can also manually be invoked by the system administrator  to
           shut down, restart or reload the automounters.
    
    
    

    OPERATION

           autofs   will   consult  a  configuration  file  /etc/auto.master  (see
           auto.master(5)) by default to find mount points on the system. For each
           of  those mount points automount(8) will mount and start a thread, with
           the appropriate parameters, to manage the mount point.
    
           /etc/init.d/autofs  reload  will  check  the  current  auto.master  map
           against  running daemons. It will kill those daemons whose entries have
           changed and then start daemons for new or changed entries.
    
           If a map is modified then the change will become effective immediately.
           If the auto.master map is modified then the autofs script must be rerun
           to activate the changes.
    
           /etc/init.d/autofs status will  display  the  status  of,  automount(8)
           ,running or not.
