NAME

SALVAGE.fs - Triggers salvaging of AFS server partitions

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

The SALVAGE.fs file, if present in a file server machine’s /var/openafs directory, indicates to the Basic OverSeer (BOS) Server (bosserver process) that it must invoke the Salvager (salvager process) during recovery from a failure of the File Server (fileserver process).

The BOS Server creates the zero-length file each time it starts or restarts the fs process. When the File Server exits normally (for example, in response to the bos shutdown or bos stop command), the BOS Server removes the file. However, if the File Server exits unexpectedly, the file remains in the /var/openafs directory as a signal that the BOS Server must invoke the Salvager process to repair any file system inconsistencies possibly introduced during the failure, before restarting the File Server and Volume Server processes.

Do not create or remove this file. To invoke the Salvager process directly, use the bos salvage command or log onto the file server machine as the local superuser root and issue the salvager command.
