|-newsys <new sysname>||
Sets the CPU/operating system indicator string for the local machine. This
option may be used multiple times in the same invocation, which sets @sys
to an array of values. When @sys contains an array of values, the first
value that matches a path is used.
If this argument is omitted, the output displays the current setting instead. AFS uses a standardized set of strings; consult the OpenAFS Quick Beginnings or OpenAFS Release Notes.
|-help||Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.|
When the -newsys argument is omitted, the output reports the machines system type in the following format:
Current sysname is <system_type>
When the -newsys argument is included, the output is the following:
fs: new sysname list set.
The following example shows the output produced on a Sun SPARCStation running Solaris 5.7:
% fs sysname Current sysname is sun4x_57
The following command defines a machine to be a IBM RS/6000 running AIX 4.2:
% fs sysname -newsys rs_aix42
The following command defines a machine to be Mac OS X PPC and a custom type foo. The second command queries the new sysname:
% fs sysname -newsys ppc_darwin_80 -newsys foo fs: new sysname list set. % fs sysname Current sysname list is ppc_darwin_80 foo
If @sys is ppc_darwin_80 foo, then cd @sys will try to change to the ppc_darwin_80 directory. If the ppc_darwin_80 directory doesnt exist, then the foo directory is tried.
To display the current setting, no privilege is required. To include the -newsys argument on an AFS client machine, the issuer must be logged in as the local superuser root.
