NAME

       fs_checkvolumes - Forces the Cache Manager to update volume information

SYNOPSIS

       fs checkvolumes [-help]

       fs checkv [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The fs checkvolumes command discards the table of mappings between volume names and volume
       ID numbers that the Cache Manager stores in memory and uses when fetching data from
       volumes. The next time an application requests AFS data, the Cache Manager must contact
       the Volume Location (VL) Server for volume location information, and then an appropriate
       file server machine for the actual data.

       The Cache Manager updates the table of mappings periodically (by default, hourly), but
       this command is useful if the issuer knows that a volume's name has changed, or that new
       read-only replicas of a volume have been released, because issuing it forces the Cache
       Manager to reference the changed volume.

OPTIONS

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

OUTPUT

       The following message confirms that the command ran successfully.

          All volumeID/name mappings checked.

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED
