NAME [Toc] [Back]
getfh() - return file handle for file on remote node
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
int getfh(char *path, fhandle_t *fhp);
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
The getfh() system call returns a file handle in the struct pointed to
by fhp for the file pointed to by path. This information is used to
perform an NFS mount for a remote node. getfh() is executed on the
remote node; results are passed back to the program doing the NFS
mount. The caller should never examine the file handle contents. The
file handle only identifies a file to the node that produced the file
handle. (The term "file handle" refers to an NFS concept.)
The effective user ID of the calling process must be superuser.
