|-dir <directory>+||Names the directory that serves as a mount point for a volume. The last element in the pathname provided must be an actual name, not a shorthand notation such as one or two periods (. or ..).|
|-help||Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.|
If the specified directory is a mount point, the output is of the following form:
<directory> is a mount point for volume <volume name>
The fs mkmount reference page explains how the Cache Manager interprets each of the three types of mount points.
o A number sign (#) precedes the <volume name> string for a regular mount point. o A percent sign (%) precedes the <volume name> string for a read/write mount point. o A cell name and colon (:) follow the number or percent sign and precede the <volume name> string for a cellular mount point.
If the directory is a symbolic link to a mount point, the output is of the form:
<directory> is a symbolic link, leading to a mount point for volume <volume name>
If the directory is not a mount point or is not in AFS, the output reads:
<directory> is not a mount point.
If the output is garbled, it is possible that the mount point has become corrupted in the local AFS client cache. Use the fs flushmount command to discard it, which forces the Cache Manager to refetch the mount point.
The following example shows the mount point for the home directory of user smith:
% fs lsmount /afs/abc.com/usr/smith /afs/abc.com/usr/smith is a mount point for volume #user.smith
The following example shows both the regular and read/write mount points for the ABC Corporation cells root.cell volume.
% fs lsmount /afs/abc.com /afs/abc.com is a mount point for volume #root.cell % fs lsmount /afs/.abc.com /afs/.abc.com is a mount point for volume %root.cell
The following example shows a cellular mount point: the State University cells root.cell volume as mounted in the ABC Corporation cells tree.
% fs lsmount /afs/stateu.edu /afs/stateu.edu is a mount point for volume #stateu.edu:root.cell
The issuer must have the l (lookup) permission on the ACL of the root directory of the volume that houses the file or directory named by the -dir argument, and on the ACL of each directory that precedes it in the pathname.
