vsdbutil(8)               BSD System Manager's Manual              vsdbutil(8)


NAME

     vsdbutil -- manipulates the volume status DB.


SYNOPSIS

     vsdbutil [-a path]

     vsdbutil [-c path] [-d path] [-i]

     vsdbutil [-h]


DESCRIPTION

     vsdbutil manipulates the volume status DB.  The following options are
     available:

     -a       adopts (activates) on-disk ownership on the specified path

     -c       checks the status of the ownership usage on the specified path

     -d       disowns (deactivates) the on-disk ownership on the specified
              path

     -i       initializes the ownership database to include all mounted HFS+
              volumes

     -h       prints out a simple help message

     The vsdbutil command is deprecated; using a volume UUID in fstab(5) is
     preferred.
