SALVAGE.fs - Triggers salvaging of AFS server partitions
file, if present in a file server machine's/usr/afs/local
directory, indicates to the Basic OverSeer (BOS) Server(bosserver
process) that it must invoke the Salvager (salvager
process) during recovery from a failure of the File Server (fileserver
The BOS Server creates the zero-length file each time it starts orrestarts the fs process. When the File Server exits normally (forexample, in response to the bos shutdown or bos stop command), theBOS Server removes the file. However, if the File Server exitsunexpectedly, the file remains in the /usr/afs/local directory as asignal that the BOS Server must invoke the Salvager process to repair anyfile system inconsistencies possibly introduced during the failure, beforerestarting the File Server and Volume Server processes.
Do not create or remove this file. To invoke the Salvager processdirectly, use the bos salvage command or log onto the file servermachine as the local superuser root and issue the salvager command.
