       afs - Introduction to AFS files


       A number of files must reside on the local disk of AFS server and
       client machines. They belong to the following general categories:

       ·   Configuration files define configuration parameters for specific
           server and kernel processes such as the Backup System Tape
           Coordinator or the Cache Manager.

       ·   Administrative files list information used in administration of
           server machines, such as a list of privileged users or server
           encryption keys.

       ·   Cache-related files contain cached data or information about cached
           data, on client machines.

       ·   Log files contain tracing messages about the operation of a
           specific process.

       ·   Database files contain database records used to administer the AFS

       ·   Controller files control the behavior of a process.

       ·   Volume header files represent AFS volumes on server partitions.

       For a description of the format and contents of each file, see its
       reference page.

       Note for Windows users: Some files described in this document possibly
       do not exist on machines that run a Windows operating system. Also,
       Windows uses a backslash (\) rather than a forward slash (/) to
       separate the elements in a pathname.
