    Command:

    sys

    
    
    

    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
    
    
    

    PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

           None
