NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     vos - manage AFS volumes and the VLDB

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     vos [command] [args]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The vos utility is used to manage AFS volumes and the volume
     database (VLDB).

     vos provides several commands:

     addsite      not yet implemented
     apropos      apropos
     backup       make a backup copy of a volume
     backupsys    make backup copies of a number of volumes
     changeaddr   not yet implemented
     create       create a volume
     createentry  create a vldb entry
     delentry     not yet implemented
     dump         dump a volume
     endtrans     end a transaction
     examine      print information about a volume
     volinfo      print information about a volume
     help         print help
     ?            print help
     listaddrs    list registered addresses in vldb
     listpart     list partitions on a server
     listvldb     list volumes in volume-location-database
     listvol      list volumes on a server
     lock         not yet implemented
     move         not yet implemented
     partinfo     print partition information on a server
     release      not yet implemented
     remove       not yet implemented
     remsite      not yet implemented
     rename       not yet implemented
     restore      not yet implemented
     status       show volume server transactions
     syncserv     not yet implemented
     syncvldb     not yet implemented
     syncsite     print the syncsite
     unlock       not yet implemented
     unlockvldb   not yet implemented
     zap          not yet implemented
     quit         exit interactive mode

     Most vos commands accept the following general arguments:

           [-cell  cellname]  Specifies which AFS cell to use, if
the default
           cell is not to be used.

           [-noauth] Specifies that vos should not try to authenticate the
           connection  to  the  server.   This may be useful with
shell scripts,
           or if there is a problem with the AFS cell.  Note that
the server
           will reject many commands if -noauth is specified.

           [-localauth] Create a ticket using the AFS server key,
that is, you
           don't need a token.  This will generally only work  on
AFS servers,
           and is very useful for performing automatic tasks.

     The syntax of the vos commands:

     vos addsite
           Not yet implemented.

     vos apropos string
           Search for a command matching string.

     vos   backup   [-id]  volumeid  [-cell  cellname]  [-noauth]
           Make a backup copy of a single  volume.  This  command
clones the volume
  given  as  argument into a backup volume with the

     vos  backupsys  [-cell  cellname]   [-noauth]   [-localauth]
           Makes backup copies of all the volumes in a cell.  The
volumes are
           cloned into backup volumes with the postfix .backup.

     vos changeaddr
           Not yet implemented.

     vos create [-server] servername [-part] partition  [-volume]
     [-cell cellname] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-verbose]
           Create   a  new  volume  named  volumename  on  server
servername partition
           partition.  Note that volumename can be no longer than
22 characters.

     vos  createentry  [-id]  volumeid  [-host]  host [-fsserver]
fileserver [-rw]
     rwvolumeid  [-ro]  rovolumeid  [-bk]  bkvolumeid   [-noauth]
           Create a vldb entry manually.  This command should not
be used unless
 you know exactly what you are doing.

     vos delentry
           Not yet implemented.

     vos  dump  [-id]  volume  [-server  fileserver]  [-partition
partition] [-cell
     cellname] [-file filename] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-verbose]
           Dump volume on fileserver to a filename.

     vos endtrans [-server] server  [-trans]  transaction  [-cell
     [-noauth] [-verbose]
           End a transaction.

     vos  examine  [-id]  volume  [-host] server [-cell cellname]
     [-localauth] [-verbose] [-extended]
           Print detailed information about volume on server.

     vos volinfo
           vos volinfo is an alias for the vos examine command.

     vos help
           Print help.

     vos ?

     vos  listaddrs  [-cell  cellname]   [-noauth]   [-localauth]

     vos listpart [-server] fileserver [-cell cellname] [-noauth]

     vos  listvldb  [-fileserver  fileserver]  [-cell   cellname]
     [-localauth] [-verbose]
           List  volumes  in the volume location database without
reading them
           on the fileserver, optionally restricting the list  to
the volumes
           located on a specific fileserver.

     vos  listvol  [-server]  fileserver  [-partition]  partition
[-cell cellname]
     [-noauth] [-localauth] [-verbose]
           List volumes on  fileserver,  without  consulting  the
volume location
           database,  optionally restricting the list to the volumes located on
           a specific fileserver.
