 fsadm(1M)                                                         fsadm(1M)

 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.

      -o specific_options
                     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.

 EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]
      Convert a HFS file system from a nolargefiles file system to a
      largefiles file system:

           fsadm -F hfs -o largefiles /dev/vg02/lvol1

      Display HFS relevant file system statistics:

           fsadm -F hfs /dev/vg02/lvol1
