View and manipulate gfs2 superblocks


tunegfs2 [Options] /dev/blockdevice


tunegfs2 allows viewing and manipulating the values contained in a GFS or GFS2 superblock. It is able to modify the UUID (on GFS2 only), label, lockproto and locktable.

The values in the GFS2 superblock are read only on mount. Any changes on a live filesystem will not take effect until the next time it is mounted. Making changes on a live filesystem is not recommended for this reason.
