rfuadmin - RFS notification shell script
rfuadmin message remote_resource [ seconds ]
This program is available with the RFS software installation option.
Refer to for information on how to install optional software.
The rfuadmin shell script is used to respond to unexpected Remote File
Sharing (RFS) events picked up by the rfudaemon(8) process. Such
events may include broken network connections and forced unmounts.
This script is not intended to be run directly from the shell.
Responses to messages received by rfudaemon can be tailored to suit the
particular system by editing this script. The following paragraphs
describe the arguments passed to rfuadmin and its standard responses.
A link to a remote resource has been cut. rfudaemon executes
rfuadmin, passing it the message disconnect and the name of the
disconnected resource. rfuadmin sends this message to all ter-

rfuadmin executes fuser(8) to kill all processes using the
resource, unmounts the resource, and attempts to mount the
A remote server machine has forced an unmount of a resource a
local machine has mounted. The processing is similar to pro-

unmounted. rfudaemon sends this script the fuwarn message, the
resource name, and the number of seconds in which the forced
unmount will occur. rfuadmin sends this message to all termi-

The console must be on when RFS is running, otherwise rfuadmin hangs
when it attempts to write to it, in which case recovery from dis-
conected resources may not complete.
