NAME

afs_volume_header - Represents an AFS volume

DESCRIPTION

The Vvol_ID.vol file is the header file for the AFS volume with volume ID vol_ID. There is one such file for each volume stored on an AFS server ( /vicep) partition. The header file stores information that includes the volume's name, ID number, type (read/write, read-only, or backup), size and status (online, offline, or busy). To display information from the header file, use the vos listvol or vos examine command.
The header file points to, but does not contain, the actual data in the volume. It is not possible to access the AFS data except by mounting the volume in the AFS filespace and reading its contents through the Cache Manager. IBM Corporation 2000. <http://www.ibm.com/> All Rights Reserved.
