Mount a block special device or remote filesystem
mount [-wruv] [-t type [-o options] [special] mountpoint] mount [-wruv] [-T type [-o options] special [mountpoint]] mount [-wruv] -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:|
The default is qnx4.
Without options, mount displays the current mount points. 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-net. In this example, devn-ne2000.so is the name of the shared object that io-net needs to load for the driver, not the name of a real device:
mount -T io-net devn-ne2000.so
Enumerate the hard disk partition table:
mount -e /dev/hd0
This will re-read 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 //node123:188.8.131.52:/C /ctest
Where your name is abc, your password is efg, your CIFS server is node123 with an IP address of 184.108.40.206, 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-net /lib/dll/npm-qnet.so
Display current mount points:
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
