fs_whereis - Reports each file server housing a file or directory
The fs whereis
command returns the name of each file server machine that
houses the volume containing each directory or file named by the -path
- -path <dir/file path>+
- Names each AFS file or directory for which to return the
host file server machine. Partial pathnames are interpreted relative to
the current working directory, which is also the default value if this
argument is omitted.
- Prints the online help for this command. All other valid
options are ignored.
The output includes a line for each specified directory or file. It names the
file server machine on which the volume that houses the specified directory or
file resides. A list of multiple machines indicates that the directory or file
is in a replicated volume.
Machine names usually have a suffix indicating their cell membership. If the
cell is not clear, use the fs whichcell
command to display the cell in
which the directory or file resides. To display the cell membership of the
local machine, use the fs wscell
The following example indicates that volume housing the directory
resides is replicated on both "fs1.abc.com" and
% fs whereis -path /afs/abc.com
File /afs/abc.com is on hosts fs1.abc.com fs3.abc.com
