       cifsclient - control script for the HP CIFS Client

       command [arguments]

       {mountpoint[...]	 |

       is part of the software bundle.	For detailed information, refer to the
       HP CIFS Client Administrator's Guide and Release	 Notes,	 available  at

       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
       without any additional command is equivalent to

       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.
			     in the case of failure  of	 the  standard	umount


			     The  output  of  includes	a  stale-mount	check.
			     forcibly unmounts all stale CIFS mounts.	cannot
			     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
			     (recognized only for root) destroys all temporary
			     CIFS Client Kerberos credentials  files  for  all

	      Report version information.  If
			     (verbose)	is  specified, display what(1) strings
			     for binaries, scripts and configuration files.

	      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
			     to be effective.  produces	 verbose  output  (all
			     subdirectories are shown), otherwise, only direc‐
			     tories with active user processes are shown.

			     NOTE:  The execution time	for  this  command  is
			     proportional  to  the  number  of	entries in the
			     mounted filesystem(s).
