FORCESALVAGE - Forces salvage of entire partition
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
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.
