fs_flushmount - Forces the Cache Manager to discard a mount point
fs flushmount [-path <dir/file path>+] [-help]
fs flushm [-p <dir/file path>+] [-h]
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
-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.

The following command flushes from the cache the mount point for user
"pat"’s home directory:
% fs flushm /afs/abc.com/usr/pat
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
