NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     AliasDB - add alias for an afs cell in dynroot

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The file AliasDB add aliases for afs cellnames  in  dynroot,
useful to add
     readwrite mountpoints in dynroot.

     Each line in the file contains at least two elements with an
     third element.  The first element is the cell name  to  make
the alias for.
     The second element is the alias.  The optional third element
is describing
 properties of the mountpoint.

     By default, an alias is a readonly mountpoint,  which  means
that afsd will
     use  readonly  replicas  of  volumes,  if they exist.  If an
alias set to
     readwrite, afsd will disregard the readonly replicas and use
the readwrite
  volumes only.  This will seriously limit performance,
but maybe
     necessary to install software packages etc.

     Each line that starts with a `#' is a comment

EXAMPLE    [Toc]    [Back]

     # This is a comment
     # cell          alias           [property]
     su.se           .su.se          readwrite
     e.kth.se        .e.kth.se       rw
     cs.cmu.edu      cs              readonly
     andrew.cmu.edu  andrew  #andrew is a readonly alias
