MNTPROC_EXPORT - Return Export List

Call Arguments


Return Arguments

struct *expinfo { name expitem; expinfo expnext; }; struct *exportlist { dirpath filesys; expinfo expinfo; exportlist next; };

name and dirpath are defined in Basic Data Types .

RPC Procedure Description

exportlist MNTPROC_EXPORT(void) = 5;


Returns a variable number of export list entries. Each entry contains a file system name, filesys, and a list of text items describing how it may be mounted and by whom. Each item is encoded as an expitem in the list expinfo. The information is implementation-specific, and while it may be meaningful to the user of the XNFS client system, it is not necessarily interpretable by client software. Typical information might include the names of systems, or groups of systems, which are allowed to mount the file system, or options describing access control or UID mapping.
