fs_whichcell(1) Returns the cell to which a file or directory belongs


fs whichcell [-path <dir/file path>+] [-help]

fs whi [-p <dir/file path>+] [-h]


The fs whichcell command returns the name of the cell in which the volume that houses each indicated directory or file resides.

To display the file server machine on which the volume housing a directory or file resides, use the fs whichcell command. To display the cell membership of the local machine, use the fs wscell command.


-path Idir/file path>+
Names each AFS file or directory for which to return the cell membership. Partial pathnames are interpreted relative to the current working directory, which is also the default value if this argument is omitted.
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.


The output includes a line for each directory or file, naming the cell to which the volume that houses the directory or file resides.


The following example shows that the current working directory resides in a volume in the ABC Corporation cell:

   % fs whichcell
   File . lives in cell 'abc.com'
