Manual page for RFUADMIN(8)

rfuadmin - RFS notification shell script


rfuadmin message remote_resource [ seconds ]


This program is available with the RFS software installation option. Refer to [a manual with the abbreviation INSTALL] for information on how to install optional software.


The rfuadmin shell script is used to respond to unexpected Remote File Sharing (RFS) events picked up by the rfudaemon.8 process. Such events may include broken network connections and forced unmounts. This script is not intended to be run directly from the shell.

Responses to messages received by rfudaemon can be tailored to suit the particular system by editing this script. The following paragraphs describe the arguments passed to rfuadmin and its standard responses.

disconnect remote_resource
A link to a remote resource has been cut. rfudaemon executes rfuadmin, passing it the message disconnect and the name of the disconnected resource. rfuadmin sends this message to all terminals using wall.1
remote_resource has been disconnected from the system.

rfuadmin executes fuser.8 to kill all processes using the resource, unmounts the resource, and attempts to mount the resource again.

fumount remote_resource
A remote server machine has forced an unmount of a resource a local machine has mounted. The processing is similar to processing for a disconnect.
fuwarn remote_resource seconds
This message notifies rfuadmin that a resource is about to be unmounted. rfudaemon sends this script the fuwarn message, the resource name, and the number of seconds in which the forced unmount will occur. rfuadmin sends this message to all terminals:
remote_resource is being removed from the system in # seconds.


wall.1 fumount.8 fuser.8 mount.8 rfstart.8 rfudaemon.8


The console must be on when RFS is running, otherwise rfuadmin hangs when it attempts to write to it, in which case recovery from disconected resources may not complete.
