 NAME
      fsirand - install random inode generation numbers

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/sbin/fsirand [-p] special

 DESCRIPTION
      fsirand installs random inode generation numbers on all the inodes on
      device special, and also installs a filesystem ID in the superblock.
      This process increases the security of filesystems exported by NFS.

      Use fsirand only on an unmounted filesystem that was checked with fsck
      (see fsck(1M)).  The only exception is that it can be used on the root
      filesystem in single-user mode if the system is immediately re-booted
      afterwards using reboot -n.

      The -p option prints the generation numbers for all inodes.

 WARNINGS
      fsirand should not be run on mounted filesystems.	 If executing
      fsirand on the root filesystem, the system should be in single-user
      mode and should be re-booted immediately afterwards using reboot -n.

 AUTHOR
      fsirand was developed by Sun Microsystems, Inc.
