     /sbin/labelit special [ fsname volume [ -n	] ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     labelit can be used to provide labels for unmounted disk file systems or
     file systems being	copied to tape.	 You must be superuser to run labelit

     previous contents).

     With the optional arguments omitted, labelit prints current label values.

     The special name should be	the physical disk section (e.g.,
     /dev/dsk/dks0d1s0), or the	a rewind tape device (e.g., /dev/tape).	 The
     device may	not be on a remote machine.

     The fsname	argument represents the	mounted	name (e.g., root, u1, etc.)
     of	the file system.

     Volume may	be used	to equate an internal name to a	volume name applied
     externally	to the disk pack, diskette or tape.

     For file systems on disk, fsname and volume are recorded in the
