FSINFO(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual		     FSINFO(8)

     fsinfo — co-ordinate site-wide file system information

     fsinfo [-qv] [-a autodir] [-b bootparams_prefix] [-d dumpsets_prefix]
	    [-e exports_prefix] [-f fstabs_prefix] [-h hostname]
	    [-m automounts_prefix] [-I dir] [-D name[=string]] [-U name]
	    config ...

     The fsinfo utility takes a set of system configuration information, and
     generates a coordinated set of amd(8), mount(8) and mountd(8) configura‐
     tion files.

     The following options are available:

     -a autodir	 Specifies the directory name in which to place the auto‐
		 mounter's mount points.  This defaults to /a.

     -b bootparams_prefix
		 Specifies the prefix for the bootparams file.	If it is not
		 given, then the file will not be generated.  The file will be
		 constructed for the destination machine and will be placed
		 into a file named bootparams and prefixed by the
		 bootparams_prefix string.  The file generated contains a list
		 of entries describing each diskless client that can boot from
		 the destination machine.

     -d dumpsets_prefix
		 Specifies the prefix for the dumpsets file.  If it is not
		 specified, then the file will not be generated.  The file
		 will be for the destination machine and will be placed into a
		 file named dumpsets prefixed by the dumpsets_prefix string.
		 This file is for use by Imperial College's local backup sys‐

     -e exports_prefix
		 Defines the prefix for the exports files.  If it is not
		 given, then the file will not be generated.  For each machine
		 defined in the configuration files as having disks, and
		 exports file is constructed and given a file name determined
		 by the name of the machine, prefixed with the exports_prefix
		 string.  If a machine is defined as diskless, then no file
		 will be created for it.  The files contain entries for direc‐
		 tories on the machine that may be exported to clients.

     -f fstabs_prefix
		 This defines the prefix for the fstab files.  The files will
		 only be created if this prefix is defined.  For each machine
		 defined in the configuration files, a fstab file is created
		 with the file name determined by prefixing this fstabs_prefix
		 string with the name of the machine.  These files contain
		 entries for file systems and partitions to mount at boot

     -h hostname
		 Defines the hostname of the destination machine to process
		 for.  If this is not specified, it defaults to the local
		 machine name, as returned by gethostname(3).

     -m automounts_prefix
		 Defines the prefix for the automounter files.	The maps will
		 only be produced if this option is specified.	The mount maps
		 suitable for the network defined by the configuration files
		 will be placed into files with names calculated by prefixing
		 the automounts_prefix string to the name of each map.

     -q		 Selects quite mode.  Only error messages that are generated
		 will be displayed.

     -v		 Selects verbose mode.	When this is activated, more messages
		 will be displayed, and all information discovered when per‐
		 forming the semantic analysis phase will be displayed.	 Each
		 verbose message is output to the standard output on a line
		 starting with a `#' character.

     -D name[=string]
		 Defines a symbol name for the preprocessor when reading the
		 configuration files.  Equivalent to the #define directive.

     -I dir	 This option is passed into the preprocessor for the configu‐
		 ration files.	It specifies directories in which to find
		 include files.

     -U name	 Removes and initial definition of the symbol name.  Inverse
		 of the -D option.

     config	 One or more configuration files to be passed as input to
