NAME
fsck - file system consistency check and interactive repair SYNOPSIS
FSType] [special ...] FSType] FSspecific-options] [special ...] DESCRIPTION
The command audits and interactively repairs inconsistent conditions for HP-UX file systems on mass storage device files identified by spe- cial. If the file system is consistent, the number of files on that file system and the number of used and free blocks are reported. If the file system is inconsistent, provides a mechanism to fix these inconsistencies, depending on which form of the command is used. special represents a special device (for example, Options recognizes the following options: Specify the file system type on which to operate (see fstyp(1M) and fs_wrapper(5)). If this option is not included on the command line, then the file system type is determined from the file by matching special with an entry in that file. If there is no entry in then the file sys- tem type is determined from the file Perform a sanity check only. will return 0 if the file system is suitable for mounting. If the file system needs additional checking, the return code is 32. If the file system is mounted, the return code is 33. Error codes larger than 33 indicate that the file system is badly damaged. Specify options specific to each file system type. FSspecific-options is a list of suboptions and/or keyword/attribute pairs intended for a file-system-specific version of the command. See the file-system-specific manual entries for a description of the specific_options supported, if any. Safe performance mode. To improve performance, a system wide will not be issued. This feature is underlying file system dependent. Echo the completed command line, but perform no other action. The command line is generated by incorporating the user-specified options and other information derived from This option allows the user to verify the command line. RETURN VALUE
The following values are returned by the option to Either no errors were detected or all errors were corrected. The file system needs additional checking. The file system is mounted. Return values greater that indicate that file system is badly corrupted. File system specific versions of will have their own additional return values (see fsck_cachefs(1M), fsck_hfs(1M), or fsck_vxfs(1M)). WARNINGS
This command may not be supported for all file system types. If this command returns the message "Can't send after socket shutdown", check with your system administrator to make sure the is running properly. FILES

NAME
mkfs - construct a file system (generic) SYNOPSIS
FStype] specific_options] special [operands] FStype] special DESCRIPTION
The command creates a file system by writing on the special file special. operands are listed on file-system-specific manpages (see the section). Options recognizes the following options: Specify the file system type on which to operate (see fstyp(1M) and fs_wrapper(5)). If this option is not included on the command line, then the file system type is determined from the file by matching special with an entry in that file. If there is no entry in then the file sys- tem type is determined from the file Display the command line that was used to create the file system. The file system must already exist. This option provides a means of determining the parameters used to construct the file system. Specify options specific to the file system type. specific_options is a list of suboptions and/or keyword/attribute pairs intended for an FStype-specific module of the command. See the file system specific manual entries for a description of the specific_options that are supported, if any. Echo the completed command line, but perform no other action. The command line is generated by incorporating the specified options and arguments with other information derived from This option allows the user to verify the command line. EXAMPLES
