  genufi - Generates a User File Inventory (UFI) file




  The genufi utility creates a User File Inventory (UFI) file that contains
  the names of user files created or copied to your system after an installa-
  tion.	 Some of these files reside on file systems that are overwritten dur-
  ing a	new installation of the	operating system. You must have	superuser
  privileges to	run the	genufi utility,	and you	must invoke the	genufi util-
  ity from the /usr/.smdb. directory.

  To create the	UFI file, the genufi utility checks the	Master Synchroniza-
  tion Inventory (MSI) file created by the invsync utility to determine	which
  file systems will be overwritten by a	complete installation.	The genufi
  utility searches those file systems for user files and writes	these entries
  to the UFI file.  File systems that remain intact during a new installation
  of the operating system are not searched.

  The genufi utility also filters out certain files and	directories that
  would	not commonly be	considered for backup.	For example, some log files,
  installation files, and temporary directories	do not need to be restored
  after	a complete installation	and are	not written to the UFI file.

  The following	directories are	not included:

       /tmp /usr/.smdb.

  In the previous list,	HOST represents	the hostname of	the system (such as
  /usr/sys/BLUTO) on the system	named bluto.

  The following	files are not included:


  Edit the UFI file to remove the entries for files and	directories that you
  do not want to back up. The UFI file is written in the setld inventory file
  format.  Refer to the	stl_inv(4) reference page for more information.


  You must have	superuser privileges to	run the	genufi utility.

  You must invoke the genufi utility from the /usr/.smdb. directory.
