Solaris Naming Administration Guide

FNS File Naming

FNS-based file naming integrates FNS naming into the Solaris file service. FNS-based file naming enables files to be named relative to users, hosts, sites, and organizations, using the FNS policies shared with other non-file applications.

FNS-based file naming gives clients a common view of the global and enterprise-wide file namespaces. Solaris applications that access the file system will, without modification, have access to the file namespaces supported by FNS.
