SALVAGE.fs - Triggers salvaging of AFS server partitions
The SALVAGE.fs file, if present in a file server machine’s
/etc/openafs/server-local directory, indicates to the Basic OverSeer
(BOS) Server (bosserver process) that it must invoke the Salvager
(salvager process) during recovery from a failure of the File Server
The BOS Server creates the zero-length file each time it starts or
restarts the fs process. When the File Server exits normally (for
example, in response to the bos shutdown or bos stop command), the BOS
Server removes the file. However, if the File Server exits
unexpectedly, the file remains in the /etc/openafs/server-local
directory as a signal that the BOS Server must invoke the Salvager
process to repair any file system inconsistencies possibly introduced
during the failure, before restarting the File Server and Volume Server
Do not create or remove this file. To invoke the Salvager process
directly, use the bos salvage command or log onto the file server
machine as the local superuser root and issue the salvager command.
