kafs-check-config — AFS configuration check tool

Synopsis

kafs-check-config [OPTION]... [<cellname>]*

Where options are:

[-46PDvv] [-c <conffile>]* [-N <restriction>]

Description

This program is used to check the configuration for the in-kernel AFS filesystem (kAFS).  This configuration is used when systemd mounts the filesystem to load up the cell database and create cell automounts in the /afs directory.

The configuration is also used by the kernel name resolver upcall to provide static configuration for some cells and to specify overrides and limits on DNS lookups.

If a list of <cellname> arguments is given, the listed cells will be dumped, including the sources of the Volume Location records and address records.

The available options are:

Arguments

-4

Only show IPv4 addresses in the dump.

-6

Only show IPv6 addresses in the dump.

-P

Dump the parse tree of the configuration file(s).

-D

Dump the cell database extracted from the configuration.

-v

Increase the verbosity of the output.  This may be specified multiple times.

-c <conffile>

Specify a configuration file to read instead of the system default.  This may be specified multiple times and the configuration files are read and applied in order.

-N <restriction>

Apply a restriction to the lookup performed for the listed cells (if any are). Restrictions include:

-N vl-srv

Don't use SRV records to find Volume Location servers.

-N vl-afsdb

Don't use AFSDB records to find Volume Location servers.

-N vl-all

Don't use SRV or AFSDB records to find Volume Location servers.

-N vl-host

Don't look cell name up as hostname to find a Volume Location server.

-N vl-dns

Don't do any lookups to find Volume Location servers.  Use only the static configuration.

Exit Status

0

If check okay and any dumping succeeded.

1

If an error occurs during processing.

2

If a command line error occurs.
