AFS_VOLUME_HEADER(5)						AFS File Reference					      AFS_VOLUME_HEADER(5)

NAME
afs_volume_header - Represents an AFS volume DESCRIPTION
The Vvol_ID.vol file is the header file for the AFS volume with volume ID vol_ID. There is one such file for each volume stored on an AFS server (/vicep) partition. The header file stores information that includes the volume's name, ID number, type (read/write, read-only, or backup), size and status (online, offline, or busy). To display information from the header file, use the vos listvol or vos examine command. The header file points to, but does not contain, the actual data in the volume. It is not possible to access the AFS data except by mounting the volume in the AFS filespace and reading its contents through the Cache Manager. COPYRIGHT

FS_CHECKVOLUMES(1)					       AFS Command Reference						FS_CHECKVOLUMES(1)

NAME
fs_checkvolumes - Forces the Cache Manager to update volume information SYNOPSIS
fs checkvolumes [-help] fs checkv [-h] DESCRIPTION
The fs checkvolumes command discards the table of mappings between volume names and volume ID numbers that the Cache Manager stores in memory and uses when fetching data from volumes. The next time an application requests AFS data, the Cache Manager must contact the Volume Location (VL) Server for volume location information, and then an appropriate file server machine for the actual data. The Cache Manager updates the table of mappings periodically (by default, hourly), but this command is useful if the issuer knows that a volume's name has changed, or that new read-only replicas of a volume have been released, because issuing it forces the Cache Manager to reference the changed volume. OPTIONS
-help Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored. OUTPUT
The following message confirms that the command ran successfully. All volumeID/name mappings checked. PRIVILEGE REQUIRED
None COPYRIGHT
