critical impact:

getvfsbyname - not supported; use sysfs (CrUn27)

UN Impacts

Problem description

The getvfsbyname function exists on Tru64 UNIX, but not on HP-UX. However, the sysfs function provides similar results.

The getvfsbyname function returns the type number of the virtual system type identified by the typename parameter.

Solution description

Use the sysfs function to achieve similar results.

The correct way for applications to get the virtual file system type number is to call sysfs. Note that sysfs may not behave exactly the same as getvfsbyname. Review your code and the applicable manpages for more information.

New behavior

#include < sys/fstyp.h > 

int typno; /* typno = a file system type index */ 
char fsname[FSTYPSZ]; /* contains a null-terminated file-system type identifier */ 
typno = sysfs(GETFSIND, fsname); ...
