backup delhost - Deletes a Tape Coordinator entry from the Backup
backup delhost << -tapehost <tape machine name >>>
<< [-portoffset <TC port offset] >>> [-localauth]
<< [-cell <cell name] >>> [-help]
backup delh << -t <tape machine name >>> << [-p <TC port offset] >>>
[-l] << [-c <cell name] >>> [-h]
The backup delhost command deletes the indicated Tape Coordinator entry
from the Backup Database. It is then impossible to submit backup
operations to that Tape Coordinator, even if it is still running. To
keep configuration information consistent, also remove the
corresponding entry from the /var/lib/openafs/backup/tapeconfig file on
the Tape Coordinator machine.
To list the Tape Coordinator machines and port offsets defined in the
Backup Database, issue the backup listhosts command.
-tapehost <tape machine name>
Specifies the hostname of the machine housing the Tape Coordinator
-portoffset <TC port offset>
Specifies the port offset number of the Tape Coordinator to delete.
If omitted, it defaults to 0. If provided, it is an integer between
0 (zero) and 58510, and must match the port offset number assigned
to the same combination of Tape Coordinator and tape device or file
in the /var/lib/openafs/backup/tapeconfig file on the Tape
Coordinator machine indicated by the -tapehost argument.
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 deletes the Backup Database entry for the Tape
Coordinator with port offset 2 on the Tape Coordinator machine
% backup delhost -tapehost backup3.abc.com -portoffset 2
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.
