tag2name - Display the path name of an AdvFS file
/sbin/advfs/tag2name [-r] domain fileset_id file_tag
Specify the [-r] option to operate on the raw device
(character device special file) of the fileset instead of
the block device.
Specifies the name of an AdvFS domain. Specifies the name
of an AdvFS fileset using the following format: Specify
the -S tag to force the command to interpret the name you
supply as a fileset name. Specify the fileset by entering
either the name of the fileset, fileset, or the file's
fileset tag number, -T fileset_tag. Specifies the relative
path of the AdvFS tags directory for a fileset. If
you do not specify this directory, the default is
mount_point/.tags. Specifies an AdvFS file tag number.
Internally, AdvFS identifies files by tag numbers (similar
to inodes in UFS). Internal messages, error messages, and
output from diagnostic utilities usually specify a tag
number in place of a file name. Use the tag2name command
to determine the name and path of an AdvFS file that is
identified by a tag number.
If you enter an invalid tag number, the command returns
the range of the valid tags for the fileset.
Mounted Filesets [Toc] [Back]
Each mounted AdvFS fileset has a directory in its mount
point. To obtain a file name, specify the path to the
directory for the fileset, followed by the tag number. The
full path name of the corresponding file is displayed to
stdout. This syntax uses AdvFS system calls.
Unmounted Filesets [Toc] [Back]
When you use the second form, the utility does not use
AdvFS code and does not depend on the filset being
mounted. The path name of the file is relative to the
fileset and is displayed on stdout.
One use of the second form is to obtain names of files
from a fileset that is unmounted and might produce a
domain panic or a system panic if it were mounted.
An active domain, which is a domain with one or more of
its filesets mounted, has all of its volumes opened using
block device special files. These devices cannot be
opened a second time without first being unmounted. However,
the character device special files for the volumes
can be opened more than once while still mounted.
It can be misleading to use the second form of this
utility on a domain with mounted filesets. Unlike the
first form of the utility, the second form does not synchronize
its read requests with AdvFS file domain read and
write requests. To avoid this problem, unmount all the
active filesets in the domain before using the second form
of this utility.
For example, the AdvFS can be writing to the disk as the
utility is reading from the disk. Therefore, when you run
the utility, metadata may not have been flushed in time
for the utility to read it and consecutive reads of the
same file page may return unpredictable or contradictory
results. [The domain is not harmed.]
The second form of this utility can fail to open a block
device, even when there are no filesets mounted for the
domain and the AdvFS daemon, advfsd is running. The daemon,
as it runs, activates the domain for a brief time.
If the tag2name utility fails in this situation, run it
You must be the root user to use the tag2name utility.
The tag you specify must be numeric and greater than 1.
The following example displays the file name corresponding
to tag 5 in the usr fileset. It assumes the current working
directory is /usr: # /sbin/advfs/tag2name .tags/5
/usr/quota.group The following example displays the file
name of the file whose tag is 145 in domain_1 fileset_1: #
/sbin/advfs/tag2name domain_1 fileset_1 145
Specifies the command path. Specifies the volumes in the
