NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     CellServDB - AFS cells and database servers

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The file CellServDB lists AFS cells known to the  local  AFS
cache manager.
     Each  entry  describes the name of an AFS cell and specifies
the servers
     for that cell.

     Here is an example of the format of an entry in the file:

     >cellname               # Freetext  comment  describing  the
     ip-address              #first.server.for.cell
     ip-address              #second.server.for.cell
     ip-address              #third.server.for.cell

     CellServDB is read when CellServDB is started, normally when
the system

     The text after the # is not a comment, it's the hostname  of
the db-server,
 and it's used to lookup the address. The address is only
used when
     the hostname is not found in DNS.

     Entries in the file are searched and expanded by  many  programs.

     In  most cases it is better to distribute the information in

     with the AFSDB DNS resource records. This avoids having  out
of date information
 in CellServDB.

     When  using  AFSDB  DNS  resource  records,  entries entries
should still be
     listed, but without any hosts. This is needed for dynroot to
