Mount a block special device or remote filesystem
mount [-abwruv] [-t type [-o options] [special] mountpoint] mount [-abwruv] [-T type [-o options] special [mountpoint]] mount [-abwruv] -e [-t|T type] [-o options] special [mountpoint] mount
For more information, see “Ordering mountpoints” in the Process Manager chapter of the System Architecture guide.
|type:||Filesystem or manager:|
|etfs||Embedded Transaction Filesystem (e.g., fs-etfs-ram)|
|ifs||Image filesystem (see mkifs)|
|io-pkt||io-pkt-v4, io-pkt-v4-hc, io-pkt-v6-hc (see the note below)|
|qnx6||Power-Safe filesystem (see fs-qnx6.so)|
If you don't specify the filesystem, mount tries to determine which to use. If it can't figure out which to use, it uses qnx4.
|Specify io-pkt for type no matter which of
io-pkt-v4, io-pkt-v4-hc, or io-pkt-v6-hc
If you've started more than one instance of io-pkt, and you've used the -i option to specify a stack instance number, you can include the stack number in the type argument (e.g., mount -Tio-pkt2 ...). For more information, see “Running multiple instances of the TCP/IP stack” in the TCP/IP Networking chapter of the QNX Neutrino User's Guide.
Without options, mount displays the current mountpoints. With options set, this utility mounts the block special device or remote filesystem, special, as the specified mountpoint. To mount a real special device, use the -t option; to specify a special-device string (which isn't necessarily a real device), use -T.
|Some servers may not support all the mount options, especially with respect to remounting and enumerating.|
The mount utility supports the /etc/fstab file.
Mount a QNX 4 filesystem on a hard drive as /mnt/fs:
mount -t qnx4 /dev/hd0t77 /mnt/fs
Mount a device driver for io-pkt*. In this example, devn-ne2000.so is the name of the shared object that io-pkt* needs to load for the driver, not the name of a real device:
mount -T io-pkt devn-ne2000.so
If you want to pass options to the driver, use the -o option before the name of the shared object:
mount -T io-pkt -o mac=12345678 devn-ne2000.so
Enumerate the hard disk partition table:
mount -e /dev/hd0
This will reread the disk partition table for /dev/hd0, and create, update or delete /dev/hd0tXX block-special files for each partition. This is used in the following two scenarios:
Mount a CIFS filesystem (fs-cifs must be running first):
mount -T cifs -o abc,efg //node123:126.96.36.199:/C /ctest
Where your name is abc, your password is efg, your CIFS server is node123 with an IP address of 188.8.131.52, the share you want to mount is /C, and the mountpoint you want to use is /ctest.
Mount an NFS 2 client filesystem (fs-nfs2 must be running first):
mount -T nfs 10.1.0.22:/home /mnt/home
Mount an NFS 3 client filesystem (fs-nfs3 must be running first):
mount -T nfs -o ver3 server_node:/qnx_bin /bin
Mount the Qnet network protocol:
mount -T io-pkt /lib/dll/lsm-qnet.so
Display the current mountpoints:
Mount the shared object that supports Enhanced Host Controller Interface (EHCI) USB controllers:
mount -T io-usb devu-ehci.so /dev/io-usb/io-usb
Remount the filesystem that's currently mounted at / as read-only:
mount -ur /
Remount the filesystem that's currently mounted at / as read-write:
mount -uw /
Remount the filesystem and add the noatime option:
mount -u -o noatime /
