NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       genufi - Generates a User File Inventory (UFI) file

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  genufi  utility  creates  a User File Inventory (UFI)
       file that contains the names  of  user  files  created  or
       copied  to  your  system  after  an installation.  Some of
       these files reside on file systems  that  are  overwritten
       during  a  new  installation  of the operating system. You
       must have superuser privileges to run the genufi  utility,
       and   you   must   invoke  the  genufi  utility  from  the
       /usr/.smdb.  directory.

       To create the UFI file, the genufi utility checks the Master
  Synchronization  Inventory  (MSI) file created by the
       invsync utility to determine which file  systems  will  be
       overwritten  by a complete installation.  The genufi utility
 searches those file systems for user files and  writes
       these  entries  to the UFI file.  File systems that remain
       intact during a new installation of the  operating  system
       are not searched.

       The  genufi  utility  also  filters  out certain files and
       directories that would  not  commonly  be  considered  for
       backup.   For example, some log files, installation files,
       and temporary directories do not need to be restored after
       a  complete  installation  and  are not written to the UFI

       The following directories are not included:

       /tmp /usr/.smdb.

       In the previous list, HOST represents the hostname of  the
       system (such as /usr/sys/BLUTO) on the system named bluto.

       The following files are not included:


       Edit the UFI file to remove  the  entries  for  files  and
       directories  that you do not want to back up. The UFI file
       is written in the setld inventory file format.   Refer  to
       the stl_inv(4) reference page for more information.
