dorfs - initialize, start and stop RFS automatically
dorfs init domain netspec [address]
dorfs start [ -v ]
This program is available with the RFS software installation option.
Refer to for information on how to install optional software.
dorfs sets up necessary environment to run Remote File Sharing (RFS).
You can also use it to start or stop RFS automatically, after its envi-
ronment is initialized. The environment only needs to be set up once
and /usr/nserve/rfmaster must exist before the environment is initial-
ized. Descriptions of /usr/nserve/rfmaster are in rfmaster(5). You
must be the super-user to run this command.
init domain netspec[address]
domain is the name of the RFS domain. netspec is the name of a
device file in the /dev directory which represents the streams-
based transport provider on which RFS will run. Currently, tcp
is the only accepted value for this field. address is the
optional tcp port number on which the listener will listen. If
unspecified, it defaults to 0x1450. This subcommand only needs
to be run once to initialize the environment. You do not need
to rerun dorfs with the init argument, unless you want to change
netspec. /usr/nserve/rfmaster must exists before you run this
command to initialize the environment. To reinitialize the
environment, you need to remove /usr/nserve/domain,
/usr/nserve/netspec, /var/net/nls/netspec/address and
start [ -v ]
Start RFS automatically. It also automatically advertises
resources that are stored in /etc/rstab and mounts RFS resources
that are stored in /etc/fstab.
-v Verify clients on mounts (see `rfstart -v').
stop Takes down RFS by forced unmounting of all advertised resources,
umounting all remotely mounted resources, executing rfstop, and
