       fs_setverify - Enables or disables data verification for AFS store data operations
       [Windows only]


       fs setverify [-verify] <on/off> [-help]


       The fs setverify command sets the status of data verification for store data operations in
       the AFS client. When enabled, each store data operation is followed by a matching fetch
       data request.  If the data does not match, the operation is repeated. The complement of
       this command is fs getverify, which shows the status of data verification in the client.

       The default data verification status is disabled.

       This is a global setting and applies to all subsequent connections to an AFS File Server
       from this Cache Manager. There is no way to enable or disable enverifyion for specific


       The fs setverify command is only available on Microsoft Windows.  There is no equivalent
       for other platforms.


       -verify <on/off>
           This is the only option to fs setverify. The -verify option takes either "on" or
           "off". "on" enables data verification. "off" disables data verification. Since this is
           the only option, the "-verify" flag may be omitted.

           0 and 1 or "true" and "false" are not supported as replacements for "on" and "off".

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


       This command produces no output other than error messages.


       There are only four ways to invoke fs setverify.  Either of:

          % fs setverify -verify on
          % fs setverify on

       will enable data verification and:

          % fs setverify -verify off
          % fs setverify off

       will disable data verification.
