labelit


NAME
     labelit - list or provide labels for file systems

SYNOPSIS
     labelit [-F FSType] [-V]  [-o FSType-specific-options]  spe-
     cial [operands]

DESCRIPTION
     The labelit utility is used to write or  display  labels  on
     unmounted disk file systems.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported:

     -F FSType       Specify the FSType on which to operate.  The
                     FSType should either be specified here or be
                     determinable from  /etc/vfstab  by  matching
                     the  special  with an entry in the table. If
                     no matching entry is found, the default file
                     system  type  specified  in  /etc/default/fs
                     will be used.



     -V              Echo complete command line. This option  may
                     be  used  to verify and validate the command
                     line. Additional information obtained  using
                     a /etc/vfstab lookup is included in the out-
                     put. The command is not executed.



     -o              Specify  FSType-specific  options.  See  the
                     manual  page for the labelit module specific
                     to the file system type.



OPERANDS
     The following operands are supported.  If  no  operands  are
     specified, labelit will display the value of the labels.

     special         The    disk    partition    (for    example,
                     /dev/rdsk/c0t3d0s6).  The  device may not be
                     on a remote machine.



     operands        FSType-specific operands. Consult the manual
                     page  of the FSType-specific labelit command
                     for detailed descriptions.

USAGE
     See largefile(5) for the  description  of  the  behavior  of
     labelit  when  encountering files greater than or equal to 2
     Gbyte ( 2**31 bytes).

EXIT STATUS
     The following exit values are returned:

     0               Write or display of labels was successful.



     non-zero        An error occurred.



FILES
     /etc/vfstab             List of default parameters for  each
                             file system.



     /etc/default/fs         Default  local  file  system   type.
                             Default  values  can  be set for the
                             following flags in  /etc/default/fs.
                             For example:

                             LOCAL=ufs       The  default  parti-
                             LOCAL           tion  for  a command
                                             if  no   FSType   is
                                             specified.
