nfsmnthelp command well documented?? I would love to know where you are
finding all this wonderful documentation!! When searching by title under
info for "nfsmnthelp" there are no matches found. When searching by
keyword, there are three references found, all of which refer to the vfs
file, which contains the entry:
#nfs 2 /etc/helpers/nfsmnthelp none remote
All say to uncomment the line, etc. but do not tell anything about what
the command itself does or what arguments it accepts.
For that matter, I've found little to no documentation on any command in the
The only way I discovered how to use the /etc/helpers/nfsmnthelp command
was by talking to an IBM NFS developer directly on the phone.
I'd love to read the documentation on all the commands in the /etc/helpers
directory. Help us out by telling where this alleged documentation is
