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.
