NAME

xfs_size_check - Verifies proper IRIX inode configuration

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

xfs_size_check

DESCRIPTION

The xfs_size_check command, when run on a file server machine that runs IRIX version 6.2 or higher and uses XFS-formatted partitions as server partitions (conventionally mounted at /vicep directories), verifies that each partition uses 512-byte inodes. AFS stores information in the inodes on server partitions, and the 256-byte inode size that XFS uses by default is not large enough.

CAUTIONS

This command is available on in the AFS distribution for IRIX system types that can use XFS-formatted partitions as server partitions.

OUTPUT

If all server partitions are properly configured, the command produces no output. Otherwise, it prints the following header:



   Need to remake the following partitions:



and then the following message for each partition on which to run the IRIX mkfs command with the indicated options:



   <device>: mkfs -t xfs -i size=512 -l size=4000b <device>



where <device> is in a format like /dev/dsk/dks0d0s0 for a single disk partition or /dev/xlv/xlv0 for a logical volume.

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

The issuer must be logged in as the local superuser root.
