NAME [Toc] [Back]
fsadm - a file system administration command
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
/usr/sbin/fsadm [-F FStype] [-V] [-o specific_options] special
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
The fsadm command is designed to perform selected administration tasks
on file systems. These tasks may differ between file system types.
special is a device file containing an unmounted file system. However,
if the file system is of the type that provides online administration
capabilities the special could be a directory. directory must be the
root of a mounted file system.
Only a superuser can invoke fsadm.
Options [Toc] [Back]
-F FStype Specify the file system type on which to operate (see
fstyp(1M) and fs_wrapper(5)). If this option is not
included on the command line, then the file system type
is determined from the file /etc/fstab by matching each
special with an entry in that file. If there is no
entry in /etc/fstab, then the file system type is
determined from the file /etc/default/fs.
Specify options specific to each file system type.
specific_options is a list of comma separated
suboptions and/or keyword/attribute pairs intended for
a specific FStype-specific module of the command. See
the file system specific manual entries for a
description of the specific_options supported, if any.
-V Echo the completed command line, but perform no other
action. The command line is generated by incorporating
the user-specified options and other information
derived from /etc/fstab. This option allows the user
to verify the command line.
