sfssd - SFS server daemon
sfssd [-d] [-S sfs-config-file] [-f config-file]
sfssd is the main server daemon run on SFS servers. sfssd itself does
not serve any file systems. Rather, it acts as a meta-server,
accepting connections on TCP port 4 and passing them off to the
appropriate daemon. Ordinarily, sfssd passes all file system
connections to sfsrwsd, and all user-key management connections to
sfsauthd. However, the sfssd_config file () allows a great deal of
customization, including support for ‘‘virtual servers,’’ multiple
versions of the SFS software coexisting, and new SFS-related services
other than the file system and user authentication.
-d Stay in the foreground and print messages to standard error rather
than redirecting them to the system log.
Specify an alternate sfssd configuration file. The default, if -f
is unspecified, is first to look for /etc/sfs/sfssd_config, then
Specify an alternate name for the sfs_config file. If sfs-config-
file begins with a /, then only this file is parsed. Otherwise,
all the directories /usr/local/share/sfs and /etc/sfs are searched
in order, and if no file named sfs-config-file is found but a file
sfs_config is found, that file is parsed. However, the process
does not look in /etc/sfs if sfs-config-file is found in
/usr/local/share/sfs. Thus, if you create a file /etc/sfs/sfs-
config-file, it will override /etc/sfs/sfs_config while still
incorporating the defaults from /usr/local/share/sfs/sfs_config.
(Files in /etc/sfs supersede default versions in /usr/local/share/sfs.)
