backup addhost - Adds a Tape Coordinator entry to the Backup Database
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]
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
· 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.
-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
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
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
The following command creates an entry in the Backup Database that
assigns port offset number 4 to a Tape Coordinator running on the
% 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
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.
