NAME

fs_getfid - Display the fid for a given path in AFS

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

fs getfid [-path] path [-help]

DESCRIPTION

The fs getfid command displays the FID for a given path in AFS. The FID is the internal identifier used by AFS encoding the volume name and the file within a volume.

CAUTIONS

This command is not available on Windows prior to version 1.5.60.

OPTIONS

-path path The path of the file (or directory).
-literal Windows only: for a symlink or mount point, evaluates the specified object rather than the object it refers to.
-help Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

OUTPUT

The output contains the name of the file or directory, the FID, and the volume containing the FID. The Windows version also outputs the object type instead of using File to describe all objects.

EXAMPLES

On Unix:



   % fs getfid .
   File . (536870918.1.1) contained in volume 536870918

   % fs getfid /afs/example.com/foo
   File /afs/example.com/foo (536870918.20404.20997) contained in volume 536870918



On Windows:



   % fs.exe getfid \\afs\example.edu\user\b\o\bob \
       \\afs\example.org\usr\bob\linktests\broken
   Directory \\afs\example.edu\user\b\o\bob (537235559.1.1) contained in cell example.edu
   fs: File \\afs\example.org\usr\bob\linktests\broken doesnt exist

   % fs.exe getfid \\afs\example.edu\user\b\o\bob \
       \\afs\example.org\usr\bob\linktests\broken -literal
