DOVEADM\-MOUNT

NAME

doveadm-mount - Manage the list of mountpoints where mails are stored  

SYNOPSIS

doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] mount command [arguments]  

DESCRIPTION

The doveadm mount commands can be used to manage the list of mountpoints where mails are stored. This is used mainly for better error handling when a mountpoint isnaqt mounted for some reason:
*
If a mail directory doesnaqt exist, itaqs autocreated. If the useraqs mails arenaqt mounted and filesystem permissions still allow the autocreation, the user will see an empty mailbox and later will have to redownload all mails. If the mountpoint is known to be unmounted, Dovecot will simply fail opening any mailboxes.
*
If dbox alternate storage isnaqt mounted and a mail in it is attempted to be accessed, Dovecot normally rebuilds the indexes and notices that all the mails in alt storage are expunged. When the alt storage is mounted back and even if index is again rebuilt, the mails wonaqt necessarily become visible anymore for IMAP clients. If the mountpoint is known to be unmounted, Dovecot wonaqt rebuild indexes and lose the mails.

Dovecot automatically adds mountpoints to this list at startup. If you donaqt want some of the mountpoints added, you can add a wildcard ignore for it.  

OPTIONS

Global doveadm(1) options:
-D
Enables verbosity and debug messages.
-f formatter
Specifies the formatter for formatting the output. Supported formatters are:
flow
prints each line with key=value pairs.
pager
prints each keyvalue pair on its own line and separates records with form feed character (^L).
tab
prints a table header followed by tab separated value lines.
table
prints a table header followed by adjusted value lines.
-o setting=value
Overrides the configuration setting from /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf and from the userdb with the given value. In order to override multiple settings, the -o option may be specified multiple times.
-v
Enables verbosity, including progress counter.
 

ARGUMENTS

path
The directory name of a mountpoint
state
The state of a mountpoint. Either online or ignore.
 

COMMANDS

 

mount add

doveadm mount add [path [state]]

If this command is run without any parameters, doveadm detects all missing mountpoints and adds them (the same way as when Dovecot does at startup).

When a mountpoint path is given, itaqs added as a mountpoint. The state can currently be either dqonlinedq (default) or dqignoredq. The ignore state is mainly useful with path wildcards to add mountpoints that you never want Dovecot to automatically add, such as: doveadm mount add '/mnt/*' ignore  

mount list

doveadm [-Dv ] [-f formatter] mount list

This command lists the mountpoints known to Dovecot and their state.  

mount remove

doveadm mount remove path

This command removes the specified path from the mountpoint list.
