rpc.smserverd - removable media device server




     rpc.smserverd is a server that handles requests from  client
     applications,   including   the   Volume  Management  daemon
     (vold(1M)), for access to removable media devices. In  addi-
     tion to vold, rmformat(1) and the CDE Filemanager (when per-
     forming  removable  media  operations)   are   rpc.smserverd
     clients.  The  rpc.smserverd  daemon is started by inetd(1M)
     when a client makes a call to a Solaris-internal library  to
     access a SCSI, IDE, or USB device. The daemon is not started
     if a client attempts to access a  floppy or  PCMCIA  device.
     Once  started, the daemon remains  active until such time as
     it is idle for three minutes or more.

     The rpc.smserverd daemon is provided for the  exclusive  use
     of the client applications mentioned above. It has no exter-
     nal, customer-accessible interfaces, including no configura-
     tion file.
