NAME
       afs - Introduction to AFS files

DESCRIPTION
       A number	of files must reside on	the local disk of AFS server and
       client machines.	They belong to the following general categories:

       o   Configuration files define configuration parameters for specific
	   server and kernel processes such as the Backup System Tape
	   Coordinator or the Cache Manager.

       o   Administrative files	list information used in administration	of
	   server machines, such as a list of privileged users or server
	   encryption keys.

       o   Cache-related files contain cached data or information about	cached
	   data, on client machines.

       o   Log files contain tracing messages about the	operation of a
	   specific process.

       o   Database files contain database records used	to administer the AFS
	   cell.

       o   Controller files control the	behavior of a process.

       o   Volume header files represent AFS volumes on	server partitions.

       For a description of the	format and contents of each file, see its
       reference page.

       Note for	Windows	users: Some files described in this document possibly
       do not exist on machines	that run a Windows operating system. Also,
       Windows uses a backslash	("\") rather than a forward slash ("/")	to
       separate	the elements in	a pathname.
