fs_wrapper(5)fs_wrapper(5)NAMEfs_wrapper - configuration and binary files used by file system admin‐
The commands listed in the SYNOPSIS can operate on different types of
file systems. Each command (except for reads file system specific con‐
figuration files that control the command's behavior, and invokes a
file system specific binary file to do the actual work. FStype is the
file system type as optionally specified on the command line. If
FStype is not given, then the file system type is determined from by
matching an entry in this file with a device provided with the command
(see individual commands for details of usage).
Administrators may also define a default file system type for the above
commands via the file If this file exists, and contains the line:
(e.g., then the above commands will assume the FStype given in unless
an FStype is provided on the command line or is in The default file
system specification is provided to maintain compatibility with
pre-10.0 invocations of the commands.
See the FILES section for a list of the files used.
The configuration files are supplied by HP or by other file system ven‐
dors. They are not meant to be edited by System Administrators. Cor‐
ruption or removal of these files may lead to strange behavior, includ‐
ing the inability to boot.
The format of the configuration file is subject to change.
The file system specific binary files are not normally executed
directly. However, if the configuration files become unusable, direct
execution of these binary files may be a useful step in repairing and
running the system again. The binary files accept the same arguments
as the commands by which they are executed.
The command is a special case. This command currently does not read a
configuration file, and does not execute a file system specific binary
file if FStype is or The binary that handles these FStypes also pro‐
cesses other FStypes and calls the file system specific command if
For historical reasons, the binary files also handle and so there are
no separate binary files for the latter two file systems.

are symbolically linked to a single executable
