fs_whoami - Display the identities seen by the fileserver


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


The fs whoami command displays the list of identities seen by the file server when accessing each directory or file named by the -path argument.

It can be useful as a debugging tool to diagnose the cause of access denied errors, particularly when the cache manager is keyed and complex access lists are set on the files or directories.


-path <dir/file path>+

Names each AFS file or directory to run the command on. Partial pathnames are interpreted relative to the current working directory, which is also the default value if this argument is omitted.


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


The output includes a section for each specified directory or file. Each section contains a line for each identity seen by the file server that houses the specified directory or file.


The following example indicates that the user will access files in /afs/ as alice@YOUR-CELL-NAME.COM and alice_laptop@YOUR-CELL-NAME.COM :

   % fs whoami -path /afs/
   Identities seen by fileserver for path /afs/ :


No special privileges are required for this command.
