dfstab — file containing commands for sharing resources across a network


dfstab resides in the directory /etc/dfs and contains commands for sharing resources across a network.

dfstab gives a system administrator a uniform method for controlling the automatic sharing of local resources.

Each line of the dfstab file consists of a share(1M) command. The dfstab file can be read by the shell to share all resources. The shareall command reads dfstab to share all resources. System administrators can also prepare their own shell scripts to execute particular lines from dfstab.


The /etc/dfs/dfstab file replaces /etc/exports, used in previous HP-UX releases.


dfstab was developed by Sun Microsystems, Inc.
