Parameters

Parameter Description
create Creates a secondary Transactional Resource Manager.
<rmrootpathname> Specifies the full path to a Transactional Resource Manager root directory.
info Displays the specified Transactional Resource Manager's information.
setautoreset Specifies whether a default Transactional Resource Manager will clean the transactional metadata on the next mount.
  • true - Specifies that the Transaction Resource Manager will clean the transactional metadata on the next mount, by default.
  • false - Specifies that the Transaction Resource Manager will not clean the transactional metadata on the next mount, by default.
<defaultrmrootpathname> Specifies the drive name followed by a colon.
setavailable Specifies that a Transactional Resource Manager will prefer availability over consistency.
setconsistent Specifies that a Transactional Resource Manager will prefer consistency over availability.
setlog Changes the characteristics of a Transactional Resource Manager that is already running.
growth Specifies the amount by which the Transactional Resource Manager log can grow.

The growth parameter can be specified as follows:

  • Number of containers, using the format: <containers> containers
  • Percentage, using the format: <percent> percent
<containers> Specifies the data objects that are used by the Transactional Resource Manager.
maxextent Specifies the maximum number of containers for the specified Transactional Resource Manager.
minextent Specifies the minimum number of containers for the specified Transactional Resource Manager.
mode {full|undo} Specifies whether all transactions are logged ( full) or only rolled back events are logged (undo).
rename Changes the GUID for the Transactional Resource Manager.
shrink Specifies percentage by which the Transactional Resource Manager log can automatically decrease.
size Specifies the size of the Transactional Resource Manager as a specified number of containers.
start Starts the specified Transactional Resource Manager.
stop Stops the specified Transactional Resource Manager.

Examples

To set the log for the Transactional Resource Manager that is specified by c:\test, to have an automatic growth of five containers, type:

fsutil resource setlog growth 5 containers c:test

To set the log for the Transactional Resource Manager that is specified by c:\test, to have an automatic growth of two percent, type:

fsutil resource setlog growth 2 percent c:test

To specify that the default Transactional Resource Manager will clean the transactional metadata on the next mount on drive C, type:

fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\
