Call Arguments


Return Arguments

typedef struct groupnode *groups;

struct groupnode { name gr_name; groups gr_next; };

typedef struct exportnode *exports;

struct exportnode { dirpath ex_dir; groups ex_groups; exports ex_next; };

RPC Procedure Description

exports MOUNTPROC3_EXPORT(void) = 5;


Procedure EXPORT returns a list of all the exported file systems and which clients are allowed to mount each one. The names in the group list are implementation-specific and cannot be directly interpreted by clients. These names can represent hosts or groups of hosts.

Implementation Guidance

This procedure generally returns the contents of a list of shared or exported file systems. These are the file systems that are made available to NFS Version 3 protocol clients.

Return Codes

There are no MOUNT protocol errors that can be returned from this procedure. However, RPC errors may be returned for authentication or other RPC failures.
