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
chfsets - Changes limits for fileset quotas SYNOPSIS
/sbin/chfsets [-F limit] [-f limit] [-B limit] [-b limit] domain [fileset...] OPTIONS
Specifies the file usage soft limit (quota) of the fileset. Specifies the file usage hard limit (quota) of the fileset. Specifies the block usage soft limit (quota) in 1K blocks of the fileset. Specifies the block usage hard limit (quota) in 1K blocks of the fileset. OPERANDS
Specifies the name of the file domain. Specifies the name of one or more filesets. DESCRIPTION
The chfsets command enables you to change fileset quotas (file usage limits and block usage limits) of any AdvFS fileset. Filesets can have both soft and hard disk storage and file limits. When a hard limit is reached, no more disk space allocations or file creations which would exceed the limit are allowed. The soft limit may be exceeded for a period of time (called the grace period). The grace periods for the soft limits are set with the edquota command. The command also displays the changes made to the file and block usage limits. Note that the root user can exceed fileset quotas. The chfsets command displays the following fileset information: Id A unique number (in hexadecimal format) that identifies a file domain and fileset. File H limit The file usage hard limit of the specified fileset before the change followed by the new limit. Block H limit The block usage hard limit of the specified fileset before the change followed by the new limit. File S limit The file usage soft limit of the specified fileset before the change followed by the new limit. Block S limit The block usage soft limit of the specified fileset before the change followed by the new limit. Use the following commands to manipulate filesets: Displays the limits and actual number of blocks used by a fileset. Displays space usage for the specified domain. Displays the file and block usage limits for the filesets in a domain. Changes the user or group block and file limits and grace period. Turns on and off quota enforcement. For more information, see the reference pages for each command. RESTRICTIONS
At least one fileset within the domain must be mounted for the chfsets command to succeed. You must be the root user to run the chfsets command. EXAMPLES
The following example changes the file hard limit from 11 to 200 and block hard limit from 121 to 1000 for the credit_fs fileset in the account_dmn domain: # chfsets -b 1000 -f 200 account_dmn credit_fs credit_fs Id : 2c2f557f.000b15f4.3.8004 File H limit : 11 --> 200 Block H limit : 121 --> 1000 EXIT STATUS
The utility returns a 0 (zero) on success and a 1 (one) on failure. SEE ALSO
