rmfset(8)							     rmfset(8)

       rmfset - 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 #
