opser(8)						      System Manager's Manual							  opser(8)

Name
       opser - interactive program for system maintenance

Syntax
       opser

Description
       The  program  is a utility that simplifies normal system and incremental backup.  It is invoked by default when the system operator logs in
       to the operator account.  The system then runs the utility in place of a shell.	The utility prompts the operator to bring  the	system	to
       single-user  mode  for  file maintenance. This includes a file system consistency check and file system backup, and then prompts to restart
       multiuser mode.

       Network allows the operator to perform commands on a slave system. The master system name must be in the file on the slave system  and  the
       slave  name  in the in the master system's file.  If necessary, the operator can escape to the shell, execute commands, and return.  Online
       help is provided.  The program allows remote file system backup, file system check, restart and both local and remote shell command  execu-
       tion.

Restrictions
       o   The local utility supports only tape as a backup media.

       o   The remote utility allows backup to files, disks, or tapes.

       o   The utility must be run from the system console; if run from a terminal, its operation is limited.

       o   The utility does not contain file restore capability.

       o   The operator must escape to the shell to perform this function.

Diagnostics
       Included in the utility as it runs.

FSCK_MSDOS(8)						    BSD System Manager's Manual 					     FSCK_MSDOS(8)

NAME
fsck_msdos -- DOS/Windows (FAT) filesystem consistency checker SYNOPSIS
fsck_msdos -p [-f] filesystem ... fsck_msdos [-fny] [-x snap-backup] filesystem ... DESCRIPTION
The fsck_msdos utility verifies and repairs FAT filesystems (more commonly known as DOS filesystems). The first form of fsck_msdos preens the specified filesystems. It is normally started by fsck(8) run from /etc/rc during automatic reboot, when a FAT filesystem is detected. When preening file systems, fsck_msdos will fix common inconsistencies non-interactively. If more seri- ous problems are found, fsck_msdos does not try to fix them, indicates that it was not successful, and exits. The second form of fsck_msdos checks the specified file systems and tries to repair all detected inconsistencies, requesting confirmation before making any changes. The options are as follows: -f This option is ignored by fsck_msdos, and is present only for compatibility with programs that check other file system types for consistency, such as fsck_ffs(8). -n Causes fsck_msdos to assume no as the answer to all operator questions, except ``CONTINUE?''. -p Preen the specified filesystems. -x snap-backup Use a snapshot with snap-backup as backup to check a read-write mounted filesystem. Must be used with -n. See fss(4) for more details. The point is to check an internally-consistent version of the filesystem to find out if it is damaged; on failure one should unmount the filesystem and repair it. -y Causes fsck_msdos to assume yes as the answer to all operator questions.
