SHOWFH(8C)                                                          SHOWFH(8C)



NAME
       showfh - print full pathname of file from the NFS file handle

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/etc/showfh server_name num1 num2 ...  num8

DESCRIPTION
       showfh  prints  the  full  path  name of the file on the server for the
       given file handle (num1 ...  num8).  server_name  is  the  server  from
       where  the  client  got  this file handle.  num1 ...  num8 are the file
       handle numbers represented in hexadecimal notation.

       The showfhd daemon should be running  on  the  NFS  servers  to  answer
       showfh requests.  If it cannot find the file corresponding to the given
       file handle, it prints a diagnostic message.

SEE ALSO
       showfhd(8C)

BUGS
       If the given NFS file handle is stale, then showfh may  not  print  the
       name  of the actual file.  The inode for the file could have been allo-
       cated to some other file.
