       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, but is inaccessible if there are no other
       mount points for it.


       -dir <directory>+
           Names the mount point to delete from the file system. The last
           element in the pathname must be an actual name, not a shorthand
           notation such as "dot" (".") or "dot dot" ("..").

           Specify the read/write path to the directory, to avoid the failure
           that results from attempting to delete a mount point from 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.


       The following command removes the mount points jones and terry from the
       current working directory (the /afs/ directory).

          % fs rmmount jones terry


       The issuer must have the "d" (delete) permission on the ACL of the
       directory that houses each mount point.
