FIXMOUNT(8)                 System Manager's Manual                FIXMOUNT(8)

       fixmount - fix remote mount entries

       fixmount [ -adervq ] [ -h name ] host ...

       fixmount is a variant of showmount(8) that can delete bogus mount
       entries in remote mountd(8) daemons.  The actions specified by the
       options are performed for each host in turn.

       -a -d -e
              These options work as in showmount(8) except that only entries
              pertaining to the local host are printed.

       -r     Removes those remote mount entries on host that do not
              correspond to current mounts, i.e., which are left-over from a
              crash or are the result of improper mount protocol.

       -v     Verify remote mounts.  Similar to -r except that only a
              notification message is printed for each bogus entry found.  The
              remote mount table is not changed.

       -A     Issues a command to the remote mountd declaring that ALL of its
              filesystems have been unmounted.  This should be used with
              caution, as it removes all remote mount entries pertaining to
              the local system, whether or not any filesystems are still
              mounted locally.

       -q     Be quiet.  Suppresses error messages due to timeouts and
              "Program not registered", i.e., due to remote hosts not
              supporting RPC or not running mountd.

       -h name
              Pretend the local hostname is name.  This option also saves time
              as comparisons of remotely recorded and local hostnames by
              address are avoided.

       showmount(8), mountd(8C).

       The RPC timeouts for mountd calls can only be changed by recompiling.
       The defaults are 2 seconds for client handle creation and 5 seconds for
       RPC calls.
