unshare_nfs - make local NFS file systems unavailable for mounting by
remote systems


unshare [-F nfs] pathname


The unshare command makes local file systems unavailable for mounting by
remote systems. The shared file system must correspond to a line with NFS
as the FSType in the file /etc/dfs/sharetab.


The following options are supported:

This option may be omitted if NFS is the first file system type
listed in the file /etc/dfs/fstypes.





attributes(7), nfsd(8), share(8)


If the file system being unshared is a symbolic link to a valid pathname,
the canonical path (the path which the symbolic link follows) will be

For example, if /export/foo is a symbolic link to /export/bar
(/export/foo -> /export/bar), the following unshare command will result
in /export/bar as the unshared pathname (and not /export/foo):

example# unshare -F nfs /export/foo

For file systems that are accessed by NFS Version 4 clients, once the
unshare is complete, all NFS Version 4 state (open files and file locks)
are released and unrecoverable by the clients. If the intent is to share
the file system after some administrative action, the NFS daemon (nfsd)
should first be stopped and then the file system unshared. After the
administrative action is complete, the file system would then be shared
and the NFS daemon restarted. See nfsd(8)
