rmfset(8)rmfset(8)NAMErmfset - Removes a fileset or a clone fileset from an AdvFS file domain
/sbin/rmfset [-f] domain fileset
Turns off the message prompt.
Specifies the name of an existing AdvFS file domain. Specifies the
name of the fileset to be removed from the specified file domain.
The rmfset command removes a fileset (and all of its files) from an
existing AdvFS file domain. Unless you use the -f option, you are
prompted with the following request before a fileset is removed: rmf‐
set: remove fileset <filesetname>? [y/n]
If you answer n, the fileset is not removed. If you answer y, the
fileset is removed.
The -f option is useful for scripts or when you do not want to be
queried about each fileset. If you choose the -f option, no prompts are
displayed. The rmfset command operates as if you responded yes to the
Unmount a fileset before removing it with the rmfset command.
A fileset or clone fileset cannot be removed with this command if it is
A fileset that has a clone fileset cannot be removed with this command
until the clone fileset has been removed.
You must be the root user to use this command. An rmfset operation can
hang if you attempt to remove a fileset and the target AdvFS domain is
experiencing heavy I/O. To work around the restriction, avoid using
the utility on busy AdvFS domains.
The following example deletes the test_fset fileset from the
test_domain file domain. In this example, the test_fset fileset is
mounted on the /mnt3 directory: # umount /mnt3 # rmfset test_domain
test_fset rmfset: remove fileset test_fset? [y/n] y #
