fs_whereis - Reports each file server housing a file or directory


fs whereis [-path <dir/file path>+] [-help]

fs whe [-p <dir/file path>+] [-h]


The fs whereis command returns the name of each file server machine that houses the volume
containing each directory or file named by the -path argument.


-path <dir/file path>+
Names each AFS file or directory for which to return the host file server machine.
Partial pathnames are interpreted relative to the current working directory, which is
also the default value if this argument is omitted.

Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.


The output includes a line for each specified directory or file. It names the file server
machine on which the volume that houses the specified directory or file resides. A list of
multiple machines indicates that the directory or file is in a replicated volume.

Machine names usually have a suffix indicating their cell membership. If the cell is not
clear, use the fs whichcell command to display the cell in which the directory or file
resides. To display the cell membership of the local machine, use the fs wscell command.


The following example indicates that volume housing the directory /afs/abc.com resides is
replicated on both "fs1.abc.com" and "fs3.abc.com":

% fs whereis -path /afs/abc.com
File /afs/abc.com is on hosts fs1.abc.com fs3.abc.com
