NAME

       backup delhost - Deletes a Tape Coordinator entry from the Backup
       Database

SYNOPSIS

       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]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       -tapehost <tape machine name>
           Specifies the hostname of the machine housing the Tape Coordinator
           to delete.

       -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.

       -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 deletes the Backup Database entry for the Tape
       Coordinator with port offset 2 on the Tape Coordinator machine
       backup3.abc.com:

          % backup delhost -tapehost backup3.abc.com -portoffset 2

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.
