           The commands in the fs command suite constitute the main administrative
           interface to the Cache Manager on an AFS client machine, which is
           responsible for fetching AFS data from file server machines on behalf
           of applications running on the client machine.
           There are several categories of commands in the fs command suite:
           ?   Commands to set and report how the Cache Manager interacts with
               server machines: fs checkservers, fs getcellstatus, fs getcrypt, fs
               getserverprefs, fs listcells, fs newcell, fs setcbaddr, fs setcell,
               fs setcrypt, fs setserverprefs, fs sysname, fs uuid, and fs wscell.
           ?   Commands to administer access control lists (ACLs): fs cleanacl, fs
               copyacl, fs getcalleraccess, fs listacl, and fs setacl.
           ?   Commands to administer server machines, volumes or partitions that
               house a given file or directory: fs diskfree, fs examine, fs
               getfid, fs listquota, fs quota, fs setquota, fs setvol, fs whereis,
               and fs whichcell.
           ?   Commands to administer the local client cache and related
               information: fs checkvolumes, fs cscpolicy, fs flush, fs flushall,
               fs flushvolume, fs getcacheparms, fs listaliases, fs newalias, and
               fs setcachesize.
           ?   Commands to administer volume mount points: fs lsmount, fs mkmount,
               and fs rmmount.
           ?   Commands to control monitoring and tracing: fs debug, fs memdump,
               fs messages, fs minidump, fs monitor, fs rxstatpeer, fs rxstatproc,
               and fs trace.
           ?   A command to administer the Cache Manager's interaction with other
               file systems: fs exportafs.
           ?   Commands to obtain help: fs apropos and fs help.
           The Cache Manager and the fs commands use and maintain the following
           configuration files:
               Lists the database server machines in the local cell and any
               foreign cell to which the administrator wishes to enable AFS access
               for users working on the machine. The database server machines run
               the Authentication, Backup, Protection and Volume Location (VL)
               Server processes, which maintain databases of administrative
               information. For users to access a cell, its "root.cell" volume
               must also be mounted in the local cell's AFS file tree.
               Defines the machine's cell membership with respect to the AFS
           reference page for each command also lists it, but it is described here
           in greater detail.
               Prints a command's online help message on the standard output
               stream. Do not combine this flag with any of the command's other
               options; when it is provided, the command interpreter ignores all
               other options, and only prints the help message.


           The privileges required for fs commands vary more than for other
           command suites. Pay special attention to the PRIVILEGE REQUIRED section
           of each command description.
           The various types of necessary privilege include:
           ?   Having permissions on a directory's ACL. For example, creating and
               removing mount points requires "a" (administer), "i" (insert), and
               "d" (delete) permissions on the ACL of the directory in which the
               mount point resides.
           ?   Being logged onto the machine as the local superuser "root". This
               is necessary when issuing commands that affect Cache Manager
           ?   Belonging to the system:administrators group in the Protection
           ?   No privilege. Many fs commands simply list information.
