unadv - unadvertise a Remote File Sharing resource
This program is available with the RFS software installation option.
Refer to for information on how to install optional software.
unadv unadvertises a Remote File Sharing (RFS) resource, which is the
advertised symbolic name of a local directory, by removing it from the
advertised information on the domain name server. unadv prevents sub-
sequent remote mounts of that resource. It does not affect continued
access through existing remote or local mounts.
An administrator at a server can unadvertise only those resources that
physically reside on the local machine. A domain administrator can
unadvertise any resource in the domain from the primary name server by
specifying resource name as domain.resource. A domain administrator
should only unadvertise another hosts resources to clean up the domain
advertise table when that host goes down. Unadvertising another host's
resource changes the domain advertise table, but not the host advertise
This command is restricted to the super-user.
If resource is not found in the advertised information, an error mes-
sage will be sent to standard error.
