advfsd - Starts the AdvFS graphical user interface daemon
The AdvFS daemon, advfsd, is a process required by the AdvFS GUI (dtadvfs). The advfsd daemon issues commands and obtains system information for the AdvFS GUI.
The /var/opt/advfsd/socket/hosts.allow file contains a list of all hosts on which the advfsd daemon will allow the AdvFS GUI to run. This file can be edited to add or remove hosts. Each host should be on a separate line. The /var/opt/advfsd/socket/gui.passwd file, if it exists, is used by advfsd to force a dtadvfs user to enter a password when attempting to connect to the host. The first line of this file is the password, in plain text, that is required by the GUI.
The advfsd daemon allows Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) clients such as Netview or Performance Manager (PM) to request AdvFS file system information. SNMP clients cannot issue system configuration commands to the advfsd daemon.
The advfsd daemon is automatically started at boot time and when the AFAADVDAEMONXXX subset is installed. Under normal conditions, this daemon does not need to be run manually.
Only one advfsd daemon can be running on a system at a given time. If a second advfsd daemon attempts to start, it will fail.
To access this utility, you must have root privilege and you must register the Advanced File System Advanced Utilities license.
The script that starts the advfsd daemon at boot time. The advfsd message catalog. The SNMP data files. The sh scripts used by the daemon to execute commands. The advfsd daemon executable. The advfsd daemon message log file. Remove or copy this log to another location periodically to prevent the log from becoming too large. The security file that lists all hosts with permission to connect to the advfsd daemon with the AdvFS GUI (dtadvfs). The advfsd password file.
