md_doc_help_kdb-remount - kdb-remount(1) - Use an existing backend to mount a new file kdb remount <new path> <new mountpoint> <existing mountpoint>

Where new path is the path to the file the user wants to mount, (Absolute for system files, relative for user files) new mountpoint is where in the key database the new configuration file should be mounted at, (For a cascading mount pount, mountpoint should start with /) and existing mountpoint is the mountpoint where the existing backend is mounted.


This command allows a user to use an existing backend (such as one from a previous mount) to mount a new configuration file to a new mount point in the key database.
