share - make local resource available for mounting by remote


     share  [-F FSType]  [-o specific_options]   [-d description]


     The share command exports, or makes a resource available for
     mounting,  through  a  remote file system of type FSType. If
     the option -F FSType is omitted, the first file system  type
     listed  in  /etc/dfs/fstypes  is  used  as  default.  For  a
     description of  NFS  specific  options,  see  share_nfs(1M).
     pathname is the pathname of the directory to be shared. When
     invoked with no arguments, share displays  all  shared  file


     - F FSType
           Specify the filesystem type.

     -o specific_options
           The specific_options are used to control access of the
           shared  resource.  (See   share_nfs(1M)  for  the  NFS
           specific options.) They may be any of the following:

     rw    pathname is shared read/write to all clients. This  is
           also the default behavior.

     rw=client[ :client]...
           pathname is  shared  read/write  only  to  the  listed
           clients. No other systems can access pathname.

     ro    pathname is shared read-only to all clients.

     ro=client[ :client]...
           pathname  is  shared  read-only  only  to  the  listed
           clients.   No other systems can access pathname.

     Separate multiple options with colons.

     -d description
           The -d flag may be used to provide  a  description  of
           the resource being shared.


     Example 1: Sharing a read-only filesystem

     This line will share the /disk file system read-only at boot
     share -F nfs -o ro /disk

     Example 2: Invoking multiple options

     The following command shares the filesystem /export/manuals,
     with  members  of  the  netgroup having read-only access and
     users on the specified host having read-write access.

     share -F nfs -o ro=netgroup_name:rw=hostname /export/manuals

     Export (old terminology): file system  sharing  used  to  be
     called  exporting on SunOS 4.x, so the share command used to
     be invoked as exportfs(1B) or /usr/sbin/exportfs.

     If  share commands are invoked multiple times  on  the  same
     filesystem,   the  last   share  invocation  supersedes  the
     previous-the options set by the last share  command  replace
     the  old  options. For example, if read-write permission was
     given to usera on /somefs, then to give  read-write  permis-
     sion also to userb on /somefs:

          example% share -F nfs -o rw=usera:userb /somefs

     This behavior is not limited to sharing the root filesystem,
     but applies to all filesystems.
