NAME

       fs_flushmount - Forces the Cache Manager to discard a mount point

SYNOPSIS

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

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

DESCRIPTION

       The fs flushmount command removes from the cache all information associated with each
       mount point named by the -path argument. The next time an application accesses the mount
       point, the Cache Manager fetches the most current version of it from the File Server. Data
       cached from the associated volume is not affected.

       The command's intended use is to discard information about mount points that has become
       corrupted in the cache. (The Cache Manager periodically refreshes cached mount points, but
       the only other way to discard them immediately is to reinitialize the Cache Manager by
       rebooting the machine.) Symptoms of a corrupted mount point included garbled output from
       the fs lsmount command, and failed attempts to change directory to or list the contents of
       a mount point.

       To flush cached data rather than a mount point, use the fs flush or fs flushvolume
       command.

OPTIONS

       -path <dir/file path>+
           Names each mount point to flush from the cache. Partial pathnames are interpreted
           relative to the current working directory, which is also the default value if this
           argument is omitted.

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

EXAMPLES

       The following command flushes from the cache the mount point for user "pat"'s home
       directory:

          % fs flushm /afs/example.com/usr/pat

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

       The issuer must have the "l" (lookup) permission on the ACL of the root directory of the
       volume that houses the file or directory named by the -path argument, and on the ACL of
       each directory that precedes it in the pathname.
