fs_rmmount - Removes a mount point


fs rmmount -dir <directory>+ [-help]

fs rm -d <directory>+ [-h]


The fs rmmount command removes the mount point named by the -dir argument from the file
system. The corresponding volume remains on its host partition or partitions, but is
inaccessible if there are no other mount points for it.


-dir <directory>+
Names the mount point to delete from the file system. The last element in the pathname
must be an actual name, not a shorthand notation such as "dot" (".") or "dot dot"

Specify the read/write path to the directory, to avoid the failure that results from
attempting to delete a mount point from a read-only volume. By convention, the
read/write path is indicated by placing a period before the cell name at the
pathname's second level (for example, /afs/.abc.com). For further discussion of the
concept of read/write and read-only paths through the filespace, see the fs mkmount
reference page.

Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.


The following command removes the mount points jones and terry from the current working
directory (the /afs/abc.com/usr directory).

% fs rmmount jones terry


The issuer must have the "d" (delete) permission on the ACL of the directory that houses
each mount point.
