rmfset(8)							    rmfset(8)



NAME

  rmfset - Removes a fileset or	a clone	fileset	from an	AdvFS file domain

SYNOPSIS

  /sbin/rmfset	[-f] domain fileset

OPTIONS

  -f  Turns off	the message prompt.

OPERANDS

  domain
      Specifies	the name of an existing	AdvFS file domain.

  fileset
      Specifies	the name of the	fileset	to be removed from the specified file
      domain.

DESCRIPTION

  The rmfset command removes a fileset (and all	of its files) from an exist-
  ing AdvFS file domain. Unless	you use	the -f option, you are prompted	with
  the following	request	before a fileset is removed:

       rmfset: remove fileset <&lt;filesetname>&gt;? [y/n]

  If you answer	n, the fileset is not removed.	If you answer y, the fileset
  is removed.

  The -f option	is useful for scripts or when you do not want to be queried
  about	each fileset. If you choose the	-f option, no prompts are displayed.
  The rmfset command operates as if you	responded yes to the prompt.

  Unmount a fileset before removing it with the	rmfset command.

RESTRICTIONS

  A fileset or clone fileset cannot be removed with this command if it is
  mounted.

  A fileset that has a clone fileset cannot be removed with this command
  until	the clone fileset has been removed.

  You must be the root user to use this	command. An rmfset operation can hang
  if you attempt to remove a fileset and the target AdvFS domain is
  experiencing heavy I/O.  To work around the restriction, avoid using the
  utility on busy AdvFS	domains.




EXAMPLES

  The following	example	deletes	the test_fset fileset from the test_domain
  file domain.	In this	example, the test_fset fileset is mounted on the
  /mnt3	directory:

       # umount	/mnt3
       # rmfset	test_domain test_fset
       rmfset: remove fileset test_fset? [y/n] y
       #
