Call Arguments

dirpath dirname;

Return Arguments


RPC Procedure Description

void MOUNTPROC3_UMNT(dirpath) = 3;


Procedure UMNT removes the mount list entry for the directory that was previously the subject of a MNT call from this client. AUTH_UNIX authentication or better is required.

Implementation Guidance

Typically, server implementations have maintained a list of clients that have file systems mounted. In the past, this list has been used to inform clients that the server was going to be shutdown.

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.
