fs_rmmount - Removes a mount point


fs rmmount -dir <directory>+ [-help]

fs rm -d <directory>+ [-h]


The fs rmmount command removes the mount point named by the -dir argument from the file system. The corresponding volume remains on its host partition or partitions.

To remove a volume use the vos remove command.


-dir <directory>+

Names a directory that is actually a mount point for a volume. The last element in the pathname provided must be the name of a directory entry. The pathname cannot end in a directory separator nor can it be the placeholder entries for the current directory (.) or the parent directory (..).

Specify the read/write path to avoid the failure that results from attempting to change a read-only volume. By convention, the read/write path is indicated by placing a period before the cell name at the pathname's second level (for example, /afs/ For further discussion of the concept of read/write and read-only paths through the filespace, see the fs mkmount reference page.


Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.
