NAME
mkfset - Create a fileset in an existing AdvFS file domain SYNOPSIS
/sbin/mkfset domain fileset OPERANDS
Specifies the name of an existing AdvFS file domain. Specifies the name of the fileset to be created in the specified file domain. DESCRIPTION
The mkfset command creates an AdvFS fileset within an existing file domain. You must create at least one fileset per file domain; however, you can create multiple filesets within a file domain. You can mount and unmount each fileset independently of the other filesets in the file domain. You can assign fileset quotas (block and file usage limits) to filesets. Use the following commands to manipulate filesets: Displays the filesets associated with a domain. Removes a fileset (and all of its files) from the file domain. Assigns a new name to an existing fileset. Changes fileset attributes; specifically fileset quotas. For more information, see the reference pages for each command. RESTRICTIONS
You must be the root user to use this utility. Each fileset within a domain must have a unique name of up to 31 characters. All whitespace characters (tab, new line, space and so on) and the / # : * ? characters are invalid for fileset names. EXAMPLE
The following example creates two filesets, credit_fs and debit_fs, within an existing domain called accounts_dmn. # mkfset accounts_dmn credit_fs # mkfset accounts_dmn debit_fs To mount the newly created credit_fs fileset on the /mnt/credit directory, enter: # mount -t advfs accounts_dmn#credit_fs /mnt/credit You can add filesets to the /etc/fstab file in the same manner that you add any file system. Once added, filesets are mounted each time you reboot the system and fileset quotas are enabled. For example, to automatically mount the credit_fs fileset, add the following line to your fstab file: accounts_dmn#credit_fs /mnt/credit advfs rq, userquota, groupquota SEE ALSO

NAME
rmfset - Removes a fileset or a clone fileset from an AdvFS file domain SYNOPSIS
/sbin/rmfset [-f] domain fileset OPTIONS
Turns off the message prompt. OPERANDS
Specifies the name of an existing AdvFS file domain. Specifies the name of the fileset to be removed from the specified file domain. DESCRIPTION
The rmfset command removes a fileset (and all of its files) from an existing AdvFS file domain. Unless you use the -f option, you are prompted with the following request before a fileset is removed: rmfset: remove fileset <filesetname>? [y/n] If you answer n, the fileset is not removed. If you answer y, the fileset is removed. The -f option is useful for scripts or when you do not want to be queried about each fileset. If you choose the -f option, no prompts are displayed. The rmfset command operates as if you responded yes to the prompt. Unmount a fileset before removing it with the rmfset command. RESTRICTIONS
A fileset or clone fileset cannot be removed with this command if it is mounted. A fileset that has a clone fileset cannot be removed with this command until the clone fileset has been removed. You must be the root user to use this command. An rmfset operation can hang if you attempt to remove a fileset and the target AdvFS domain is experiencing heavy I/O. To work around the restriction, avoid using the utility on busy AdvFS domains. EXAMPLES
The following example deletes the test_fset fileset from the test_domain file domain. In this example, the test_fset fileset is mounted on the /mnt3 directory: # umount /mnt3 # rmfset test_domain test_fset rmfset: remove fileset test_fset? [y/n] y # SEE ALSO
