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

NAME
     automount -- update autofs	mounts

SYNOPSIS
     automount [-D name=value] [-L] [-c] [-f] [-o options] [-v]	[-u]

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(4) filesystems to match.  These options are
     available:

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

     -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.

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

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

     -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	filesystems mounted by automountd(8).  autofs(5)
	 mounts	are not	unmounted.  To unmount all autofs 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 filesystems mounted by	automountd(8):
	   automount -u
