NAME

FORCESALVAGE - Forces salvage of entire partition

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

The FORCESALVAGE file, if present on an AFS server partition (that is, in a /vicep directory), signals that the Salvager must salvage the entire partition. The AFS-modified version of the fsck program creates the empty (zero-length) file when it discovers corruption on the partition. The Salvager removes the file when it completes the salvage operation.

When the File Server detects the presence of the file on a partition on which it is attaching volumes, it stops, detaches any volumes that are already attached, and exits after recording a message in the /var/openafs/logs/FileLog file. The Bos Server then invokes the Salvager to salvage the partition.
