fs_lsmount - Reports the volume for which a directory is the mount
fs lsmount -dir <directory>+ [-help]
fs ls -d <directory>+ [-h]
The fs lsmount command reports the volume for which each specified
directory is a mount point, or indicates with an error message that a
directory is not a mount point or is not in AFS.
To create a mount point, use the fs mkmount command. To remove one, use
the fs rmmount command.
Names the directory that serves as a mount point for a volume. The
last element in the pathname provided must be an actual name, not a
shorthand notation such as one or two periods ("." or "..").
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
If the specified directory is a mount point, the output is of the
'<directory>' is a mount point for volume '<volume name>'
· A number sign ("#") precedes the <volume name> string for a regular
· A percent sign ("%") precedes the <volume name> string for a
read/write mount point.
· A cell name and colon (":") follow the number or percent sign and
precede the <volume name> string for a cellular mount point.
The fs mkmount reference page explains how the Cache Manager interprets
each of the three types of mount points.
If the directory is a symbolic link to a mount point, the output is of
'<directory>' is a symbolic link, leading to a mount point for volume
If the directory is not a mount point or is not in AFS, the output
'<directory>' is not a mount point.
If the output is garbled, it is possible that the mount point has
become corrupted in the local AFS client cache. Use the fs flushmount
command to discard it, which forces the Cache Manager to refetch the
The following example shows the mount point for the home directory of
% fs lsmount /afs/abc.com/usr/smith
'/afs/abc.com/usr/smith' is a mount point for volume '#user.smith'
The following example shows both the regular and read/write mount
points for the ABC Corporation cell’s "root.cell" volume.
% fs lsmount /afs/abc.com
'/afs/abc.com' is a mount point for volume '#root.cell'
% fs lsmount /afs/.abc.com
'/afs/.abc.com' is a mount point for volume '%root.cell'
The following example shows a cellular mount point: the State
University cell’s "root.cell" volume as mounted in the ABC Corporation
% fs lsmount /afs/stateu.edu
'/afs/stateu.edu' is a mount point for volume '#stateu.edu:root.cell'
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
-dir argument, and on the ACL of each directory that precedes it in the
