FS_FLUSHMOUNT(1)	     AFS Command Reference	      FS_FLUSHMOUNT(1)

NAME
       fs_flushmount - Forces the Cache	Manager	to discard a mount point

SYNOPSIS
       fs flushmount [-path <dir/file path>+] [-help]

       fs flushm [-p <dir/file path>+] [-h]

DESCRIPTION
       The fs flushmount command removes from the cache	all information
       associated with each mount point	named by the -path argument. The next
       time an application accesses the	mount point, the Cache Manager fetches
       the most	current	version	of it from the File Server. Data cached	from
       the associated volume is	not affected.

       The command's intended use is to	discard	information about mount	points
       that has	become corrupted in the	cache. (The Cache Manager periodically
       refreshes cached	mount points, but the only other way to	discard	them
       immediately is to reinitialize the Cache	Manager	by rebooting the
       machine.) Symptoms of a corrupted mount point included garbled output
       from the	fs lsmount command, and	failed attempts	to change directory to
       or list the contents of a mount point.

       To flush	cached data rather than	a mount	point, use the fs flush	or fs
       flushvolume command.

OPTIONS
       -path <dir/file path>+
	   Names each mount point to flush from	the cache. Partial pathnames
	   are interpreted relative to the current working directory, which is
	   also	the default value if this argument is omitted.

       -help
	   Prints the online help for this command. All	other valid options
	   are ignored.

EXAMPLES
       The following command flushes from the cache the	mount point for	user
       "pat"'s home directory:

	  % fs flushm /afs/abc.com/usr/pat

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED
       The issuer must have the	"l" (lookup) permission	on the ACL of the root
       directory of the	volume that houses the file or directory named by the
       -path argument, and on the ACL of each directory	that precedes it in
       the pathname.
