NAME

       FORCESALVAGE - Forces salvage of entire partition

DESCRIPTION

       The FORCESALVAGE file, if present on an AFS server partition (that is,
       in a /vicep directory), signals that the Salvager must salvage the
       entire partition. The AFS-modified version of the fsck program creates
       the empty (zero-length) file when it discovers corruption on the
       partition. The Salvager removes the file when it completes the salvage
       operation.

       When the File Server detects the presence of the file on a partition on
       which it is attaching volumes, it stops, detaches any volumes that are
       already attached, and exits after recording a message in the
       /var/log/openafs/FileLog file. The Bos Server then invokes the Salvager
       to salvage the partition.
