/sbin/umountall [-F FSType] [-k] [-l | -r]
The mountall command mounts filesystems according
to a file_system_table.
If no file_system_table is specified,
then the file /etc/dfs/dfstab is used.
Before each filesystem is mounted, a sanity check is done
using fsck (see
to see if it appears mountable.
If the filesystem does not appear mountable, it is fixed,
using fsck, before the mount is attempted.
The umountall command causes all mounted filesystems except
root, /proc, /stand, /dev/_tcp,
and /dev/fd to be unmounted.
The mountall and umountall commands take the following options:
The mountall and umountall commands

Limit the action to local filesystems.
Limit the action to remote filesystem types.
Send a SIGKILL signal to processes that have files opened.

With no arguments mountall restricts
the mount to all systems with ``automnt'' field set to ``yes'' in
If the FSType is specified,
mountall and umountall limit their actions

No messages are printed if the filesystems are mountable and clean.
