You can choose not to record the mount in this file.

Some programs might mistakenly report that there is no free space left in partitions assigned to the fileset, when there is actually free space available. This option forces statfs() to report the number of free blocks as being one less than the number of blocks in the file system. Always indicate blocks free [No]: always_empty=No # # # # # # # # # Display verbose messages (verbose) ================================== By default, the client setup utility runs quietly, suppressing informational messages generated by the commands.
