NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     resymlink - force a recreation of a symbolic link file

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     resymlink file1 [file2 file3 ...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     All named files are recreated with	their current symbolic link
     information.  A symbolic link is a	special	kind of	file whose contents
     are the name of another file (see symlink(2)).  A symbolic	link contains
     the name of the file to which it is linked, and is	created	with the ln(1)

     The resymlink command allows a user to recreate a current symbolic	link,
     possibly using different filesystem creation policies.  In	particular, if
     the Extent	Filesystem global system parameter efs_inline is non-zero,
     symbolic link information is stored within	an EFS file's inode structure,
     and not in	a separate (out-of-line) filesystem block.  This saves disk
     space and incore memory space and is faster to interpret for symbolic
     link files	that are currently being accessed by the system.  For more
     information on the	global system parameter	efs_inline, see	systune(1M)
     and inode(4).

WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     Inline symbolic links are not supported on	systems	prior to IRIX 5.3
     (32-bit) or IRIX 6.0.1 (64-bit).  If an EFS filesystem that contains
     inline symbolic links is to be moved to a pre-5.3/6.0.1 system--moved
     either physically or logically, as	when a system is downgraded to a
     previous release--all inline symbolic links must first be recreated outof-line.
  This is accomplished by setting the efs_inline system parameter
     to	0 and running resymlink	on all EFS symbolic links that have been
     created in-line.  For example:

	  find / -local	-type l	-exec resymlink	{} \;
