NAME

       backup addhost - Adds a Tape Coordinator entry to the Backup Database

SYNOPSIS

       backup addhost << -tapehost <tape machine name >>>
           << [-portoffset <TC port offset] >>>
           [-localauth] << [-cell <cell name] >>> [-help]

       backup addh << -t <tape machine name >>> << [-p <TC port offset] >>>
           [-l] << [-c <cell name] >>> [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The backup addhost command creates a Tape Coordinator entry in the
       Backup Database. The entry records

       ·   The host name of the Tape Coordinator machine where the Tape
           Coordinator (butc) process runs, as specified with the -tapehost
           argument.

       ·   The Tape Coordinator’s port offset number, as specified with the
           -portoffset argument. An entry for the port offset must also appear
           in the /var/lib/openafs/backup/tapeconfig file on the Tape
           Coordinator machine, where it is mapped to a UNIX device name (for
           a tape device) or pathname (for a backup data file).

       Each Tape Coordinator must have its own port offset number, and the
       command fails if a Backup Database entry already exists for the
       requested port offset number. To display existing Tape Coordinator
       entries, use the backup listhosts command.

OPTIONS

       -tapehost <tape machine name>
           Specifies the fully-qualified hostname of the machine for which to
           create a Tape Coordinator entry in the Backup Database. The machine
           must have an entry in either the cell’s naming service (such as the
           Domain Name Service) or the host file (/etc/hosts or equivalent) on
           the machine where the command is issued.

       -portoffset <TC port offset>
           Specifies the Tape Coordinator’s port offset number. Provide an
           integer from the range 0 through 58510, or omit this argument to
           use the default value of 0 (zero). The value must match the port
           offset number recorded for the same combination of Tape Coordinator
           and tape device or file in the /var/lib/openafs/backup/tapeconfig
           file on the Tape Coordinator machine named by the -tapehost
           argument.

       -localauth
           Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local
           /etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file. The backup command interpreter
           presents it to the Backup Server, Volume Server and VL Server
           during mutual authentication. Do not combine this flag with the
           -cell argument. For more details, see the backup(8) manpage.

       -cell <cell name>
           Names the cell in which to run the command. Do not combine this
           argument with the -localauth flag. For more details, see the
           backup(8) manpage.

       -help
           Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
           are ignored.

EXAMPLES

       The following command creates an entry in the Backup Database that
       assigns port offset number 4 to a Tape Coordinator running on the
       machine backup1.abc.com:

          % backup addhost -tapehost backup1.abc.com -portoffset 4

       The following command creates a Backup Database entry that assigns port
       offset number 0 to a Tape Coordinator on the machine backup3.abc.com:

          % backup addhost backup3.abc.com

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

       The issuer must be listed in the /etc/openafs/server/UserList file on
       every machine where the Backup Server is running, or must be logged
       onto a server machine as the local superuser root if the -localauth
       flag is included.
