pt_util — Utility to load/dump AFS protection database
pt_util [-w] [-u] [-g] [-m] [-n] [-s] [-x] [-d datafile] [-p
This manual page documents pt_util, a utility for dumping, loading and
creating AFS protection databases. The protection database is normally
made available by the ptserver daemon running on the AFS database
servers. However, pt_util provides a mechanism for manipulating
the database when ptserver is unavailable. This is useful to create an
initial database, to effect large batch changes or when the database
has a damaged system:administrators group.
By default, pt_util opens the database and prints the version. Options
allow extraction of information from the database or writing new
entries into the database.
-h Show summary of options.
-w Update PRDB with contents of data file or standard input if
the -d is not used
-u List users in the database.
-g List groups in the database.
-m List group members.
-n Follow name hash chains instead of ID hashes.
-s List only system: groups. Used by MIT’s Moira.
Read from or write printable representation of the database
-p prdb Manipulate the protection database prdb. The running
protection database is /var/lib/openafs/db/prdb.DB0
