is a shell script used to start and stop the CIFS Client, and to per‐
form other useful tasks. Only users with 'root' capabilities can use
the commands and (see also the option to and Any user can invoke and

The control script recognizes the following commands:
Start the CIFS Client daemon.
Shut down the daemon.
Stop, sleep 1 second, start.
Display information about the daemon: run status, pid, start
time, stale-mount check, version, build data.
Forcibly unmount the given CIFS
mountpoint(s). This is an emergency procedure
that should be used only for stale CIFS mounts.

be used unless the CIFS Client is down.
Display the contents of all of the invoking user's CIFS Client
Kerberos credentials files. This command pro‐
vides a shortcut that invokes klist(1) on all of
the user's credentials files, automatically
appending the option for each file. (recognized
only for root) lists entries for all users. CIFS
Client Kerberos credentials files will be present
on the system only if the configuration parameter
rmTmpKerbCredFiles has been set to The files are
located in /var/opt/cifsclient/krb5_tmp.
Destroy all of the invoking user's temporary CIFS Client Ker‐
credentials files, using kdestroy(1). This oper‐
ation is safe, because the temporary files are
never reused. To destroy a single CIFS Client
Kerberos credentials file, use kdestroy(1)
directly, specifying the option. CIFS Client
Kerberos credentials files are located in
/var/opt/cifsclient/krb5_tmp; they will be
present on the system only if the configuration
parameter rmTmpKerbCredFiles has been set to

Run (see fuser(1M)) against the given CIFS filesystem
mountpoint and each of its subdirectories. This
is useful for determining which users are access‐
ing the mount, in the event that unmounting fails
with a "Device busy" message. You must be logged
into the mounted CIFS fileserver for this command
