 newfs(1M)                                                         newfs(1M)




 NAME
      newfs - construct a new file system

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/sbin/newfs [-F FStype] [-o specific_options] [-V] special

 DESCRIPTION
      The newfs command is a "friendly" front-end to the mkfs command (see
      mkfs(1M)).  The newfs command calculates the appropriate parameters
      and then builds the file system by invoking the mkfs command.

      special represents a character (raw) special device.

    Options
      newfs recognizes the following options:

           -F FStype      Specify the file system type on which to operate
                          (see fstyp(1M) and fs_wrapper(5)).  If this option
                          is not included on the command line, then the file
                          system type is determined from the file /etc/fstab
                          by matching special with an entry in that file.
                          If there is no entry in /etc/fstab, then the file
                          system type is determined from the file
                          /etc/default/fs.

           -o specific_options
                          Specify options specific to the file system type.
                          specific_options is a list of suboptions and/or
                          keyword/attribute pairs intended for an FStype-
                          specific module of the command.  See the file
                          system specific manual entries for a description
                          of the specific_options that are supported, if
                          any.

           -V             Echo the completed command line, but perform no
                          other actions.  The command line is generated by
                          incorporating the specified options and arguments
                          and other information derived from /etc/fstab.
                          This option allows the user to verify the command
                          line.

 EXAMPLES
      Execute the newfs command to create an HFS file system on
      /dev/rdsk/c1t0d2

           newfs -F hfs /dev/rdsk/c1t0d2
