NAME


smbiod - SMB client I/O daemon

SYNOPSIS


/usr/lib/smbfs/smbiod


DESCRIPTION


smbiod is a helper program that initiates an SMB reconnection, when
needed.


When a user runs an smbutil or mount_smbfs command, an smbiod process is
started and continues to run until that user no longer has any SMB client
connections. Only one smbiod process runs for each user that has SMB
client connections.


Each smbiod process instantiates a door service on one of the following
files:

o /tmp/.smbiod-UID file for normal users

o /var/run/smbiod-0 file for superuser


The smbiod daemon has no external, customer-accessible interfaces.

EXIT STATUS


The following exit values are returned:

0
Successful completion.


>0
An error occurred.
