xfs_admin(8)                                                      xfs_admin(8)



NAME
       xfs_admin - change parameters of an XFS filesystem

SYNOPSIS
       xfs_admin [ -elu] [ -L label ] [ -U uuid ] device
       xfs_admin -f [ -elu] [ -L label ] [ -U uuid ] filename

DESCRIPTION
       xfs_admin  uses the xfs_db(8) command to modify various parameters of a
       filesystem.

       Devices that are  mounted  cannot  be  modified.   Administrators  must
       unmount  filesystems before xfs_admin or xfs_db can convert parameters.
       A number of parameters of a mounted filesystem can be examined and mod-
       ified using the xfs_growfs(8) command.

OPTIONS
       -e   Enables  unwritten  extent  support  on a filesystem that does not
            already have this enabled.

       -f   Specifies that the filesystem image to be processed is stored in(1,8) a
            regular file(1,n) (see the mkfs.xfs -d file(1,n) option).

       -l   Print the current filesystem label.

       -u   Print the current filesystem UUID (Universally Unique IDentifier).

       -L label
            Set the filesystem label.  XFS filesystem labels can be at most 12
            characters  long; if(3,n) label is longer than 12 characters, xfs_admin
            will truncate(2,7) it and print  a  warning  message.   The  filesystem
            label can be cleared using the special ``--'' value for label.

       -U UUID
            Set  the  UUID  of the filesystem.  A sample UUID looks like this:
            "c1b9d5a2-f162-11cf-9ece-0020afc76f16".  The uuid may also be nil,
            which will set(7,n,1 builtins) the filesystem UUID to the null UUID.  The uuid may
            also be generate, which will generate a new UUID for the  filesys-
            tem.

       The mount(2,8)(8) manual entry describes how to mount(2,8) a filesystem using its
       label or UUID, rather than its block special device name.
