fs_getcellstatus - Reports whether setuid programs are honored in a cell


fs getcellstatus -cell <cell name>+ [-config <configuration file>] [-help]

-cell <cell name>+

Names each cell for which to report setuid status. Provide the fully qualified domain name, or a shortened form that disambiguates it from the other cells listed in the local configuration file.

-config <configuration file>

The location of the configuration file to be used. The default path is /etc/yfs/yfs-client.conf.

The output reports one of the following two values as appropriate:

   Cell <cell> status: setuid allowed
   Cell <cell> status: no setuid allowed


The following example indicates that programs from the cell are not allowed to run with setuid permission.

   % fs getcellstatus
   Cell status: no setuid allowed
