clear_locks


NAME
     clear_locks - clear locks held on behalf of an NFS client

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/sbin/clear_locks [-s] hostname

DESCRIPTION
     The clear_locks command removes all file, record, and  share
     locks  created by the hostname and held on the current host,
     regardless of which process created or owns the locks.

     This command can be run only by the super-user.

     This command should only be used to repair the rare case  of
     a  client crashing and failing to clear held locks. Clearing
     locks held by an active client  may  cause  applications  to
     fail in an unexpected manner.

OPTIONS
     -s       Remove all locks created by the current machine and
              held by the server hostname.



OPERANDS
     The following operands are supported:

     hostname        name of host server



EXIT STATUS
     0        Successful operation.



     1        If not root.



     2        Usage error.



     3        If unable to contact server (RPC).
