       cdslinvchk - Checks the CDSL inventory of the base operating system and
       layered applications.

       /usr/sbin/cdslinvchk [log_file_path]

       The path name to a location for the log file.  By default this will  be

       Use  the	 cdslinvchk  script to verify the current inventory of Context
       Dependent Symbolic Links (CDSLs) on a running system.  CDSLs  are  spe‐
       cial  symbolic  links  that  enable  a system to work in a cluster.  If
       CDSLs are accidentally removed, your system will not function correctly
       in a cluster.  While this is not a problem for stand-alone systems, you
       may not be able to add the system as a member of a working  cluster  at
       some  future time.  You can run this script at any time or configure it
       to run at system start-up, or as a cron task.

       When you invoke the script, it checks the CDSLs on the  running	system
       against	CDSLs  of  the installed inventory in /usr/.smdb and the addi‐
       tional entries in /var/adm/cdsl_admin.inv, and ensures that each target
       file  exists on the system as a properly-constituted CDSL. If the check
       is successful, the following message is displayed and the script termi‐
       nates: Successful CDSL inventory check

       If  the script finds inconsistencies in the inventory, warning messages
       are displayed on your terminal and logged to the default	 log  file  at
       /var/adm/cdsl_check_list.   You	can  specify an alternate location for
       the log fill if required.  The script locates any modified, missing, or
       replaced CDSLs.	Note that the previous copy of the log file is renamed
       and retained for reference and is renamed by appending to the filename.

       Refer to the System Administration guide for information on  recreating
       any  missing  or broken CDSLs.  Refer to the hier(5) reference page for
       an inventory of CDSLs.

       One or more of the following messages may be displayed  and  logged  to
       the log file: Unable to create <pathname> report file -- the script was
       not able to create a log file.  Check the target	 directory  and	 secu‐
       rity.   Expected	 CDSL:	<cdsl_pathname>	 -> <pathname> CDSL Target has
       been modified to: <pathname> CDSL has  been  replaced  with  <pathname>
