VOLRMMOUNT(1) User Commands VOLRMMOUNT(1)


NAME


volrmmount - call rmmount to mount or unmount media

SYNOPSIS


volrmmount [-i | -e] [name | nickname]


volrmmount [-d]


DESCRIPTION


The volrmmount utility calls rmmount(8) to, in effect, simulate an
insertion (-i) or an ejection (-e). Simulating an insertion often means
that rmmount will mount the media. Conversely, simulating an ejection
often means that rmmount will unmount the media. However, these actions
can vary depending on the rmmount configuration and media type.


For example, using default settings, if you insert a music CD, it might
not be mounted. However, you can configure rmmount so that it calls
workman whenever a music CD is inserted.


This command allows you to override volume management's usual handling of
media (see EXAMPLES below).

OPTIONS


The following options are supported:

-i
Simulates an insertion of the specified media by calling rmmount.


-e
Simulates an ejection of the specified media by calling rmmount.


-d
Displays the name of the default device for volrmmount to handle.
This device is used if no name or nickname is supplied.


OPERANDS


The following operands are supported:

name
The name that volume management recognizes as the device's
name.


nickname
A shortened version of the device's name. Following is the
list of recognized nicknames:

EXAMPLES


Example 1: Using the volrmmount command




When volume management finds a floppy that contains a filesystem, it
calls rmmount to mount it. If you wish to run tar(1) or cpio(1) on that
floppy, it must first be unmounted. To unmount the floppy use:


example% volrmmount -e floppy0


After volrmmount unmounts the floppy, if you wish to re-mount it (rather
than ejecting it and reinserting it) use:


example% volrmmount -i floppy0


Notice that if you are using a named floppy, you can use its name in
place of floppy0.
