fs_lsmount - Reports the volume for which a directory is the mount point.
fs lsmount -dir
fs ls -d
The fs lsmount
command reports the volume for which each specified
directory is a mount point, or indicates with an error message that a
directory is not a mount point or is not in AFS.
To create a mount point, use the fs mkmount
command. To remove one, use
the fs rmmount
- -dir <directory>+
- Names the directory that serves as a mount point for a volume. The last
element in the pathname provided must be an actual name, not a shorthand
notation such as one or two periods ("." or
- Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are
If the specified directory is a mount point, the output is of the following
'<directory>' is a mount point for volume '<volume name>'
- A number sign ("#") precedes the <volume name> string for
a regular mount point.
- A percent sign ("%") precedes the <volume name> string for
a read/write mount point.
- A cell name and colon (":") follow the number or percent sign
and precede the <volume name> string for a cellular mount
The fs mkmount
reference page explains how the Cache Manager interprets
each of the three types of mount points.
If the directory is a symbolic link to a mount point, the output is of the form:
'<directory>' is a symbolic link, leading to a mount point for volume
If the directory is not a mount point or is not in AFS, the output reads:
'<directory>' is not a mount point.
If the output is garbled, it is possible that the mount point has become
corrupted in the local AFS client cache. Use the fs flushmount
to discard it, which forces the Cache Manager to refetch the mount point.
The following example shows the mount point for the home directory of user
% fs lsmount /afs/abc.com/usr/smith
'/afs/abc.com/usr/smith' is a mount point for volume '#user.smith'
The following example shows both the regular and read/write mount points for the
ABC Corporation cell's "root.cell" volume.
% fs lsmount /afs/abc.com
'/afs/abc.com' is a mount point for volume '#root.cell'
% fs lsmount /afs/.abc.com
'/afs/.abc.com' is a mount point for volume '%root.cell'
The following example shows a cellular mount point: the State University cell's
"root.cell" volume as mounted in the ABC Corporation cell's tree.
% fs lsmount /afs/stateu.edu
'/afs/stateu.edu' is a mount point for volume '#stateu.edu:root.cell'
The issuer must have the "l" (lookup) permission on the ACL of the
root directory of the volume that houses the file or directory named by the
argument, and on the ACL of each directory that precedes it in the
