NFSPROC_ROOT - Get File System Root

Call Arguments


Return Arguments


RPC Procedure Description

void NFSPROC_ROOT(void) = 3;


Obsolete. The function of looking up the root file handle is now handled by the mount protocol. This procedure is no longer used because finding the root file handle of a file system requires moving pathnames between client and server. To do this correctly would require the definition of a network standard representation of pathnames. Instead, the function of looking up the root file handle is done by the MNTPROC_MNT procedure. (See Mount Protocol .)
