SYS(1)			     AFS Command Reference			SYS(1)

NAME
       sys - Reports the compile-time CPU/operating system type

SYNOPSIS
       sys

DESCRIPTION
       The sys command displays	the string set at compile time that indicates
       the local machine's CPU/operating system	(OS) type, conventionally
       called the sysname.  This string	is the default for the value stored in
       kernel memory.  The Cache Manager substitutes this string for the @sys
       variable	which can occur	in AFS pathnames; the OpenAFS Quick Start
       Guide and OpenAFS Administration	Guide explain how using	@sys can
       simplify	cell configuration.

       To set a	new value in kernel memory, use	the fs sysname command.	 To
       view the	current	value set in the kernel, use either fs sysname or
       livesys.

CAUTIONS
       You almost always want to use livesys rather than this command.	The
       sys command displays a single value hard-coded at compile time.	It
       does not	query the Cache	Manager	for the	current	value and it does not
       report sysname lists.  If you have changed the local system type	with
       fs sysname, or if you run a version of sys compiled differently than
       the Cache Manager running on the	system,	the value returned will	not
       match the behavior of the Cache Manager.	 The only reason to use	sys is
       that livesys wasn't available in	older versions of AFS.

OUTPUT
       The machine's system type appears as a text string:

	  I<system_type>

EXAMPLES
       The following example shows the output produced on a Sun	SPARCStation
       running Solaris 5.7:

	  % sys
	  sun4x_57
