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.
unadv unadvertises a Remote File Sharing (RFS) resource, which is the advertised symbolic name of a local directory, by removing it from the advertised information on the domain name server. unadv prevents subsequent remote mounts of that resource. It does not affect continued access through existing remote or local mounts.
An administrator at a server can unadvertise only those resources that physically reside on the local machine. A domain administrator can unadvertise any resource in the domain from the primary name server by specifying resource name as domain.resource. A domain administrator should only unadvertise another hosts resources to clean up the domain advertise table when that host goes down. Unadvertising another host's resource changes the domain advertise table, but not the host advertise table.
This command is restricted to the super-user.
If resource is not found in the advertised information, an error message will be sent to standard error.
