NAME

       fs_listcells - Displays the database server machines known to the Cache Manager

SYNOPSIS

       fs listcells [-numeric] [-help]

       fs listc [-n] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The fs listcells command formats and displays the list of the database server machines
       that the Cache Manager stores in kernel memory for its home cell and foreign cells.

       At each reboot of the client machine, the Cache Manager copies the contents of
       /etc/openafs/CellServDB into kernel memory. To modify the list between reboots, use the fs
       newcell command.

OPTIONS

       -numeric
           Displays each database server machine's IP address rather than hostname.

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

OUTPUT

       The output includes a line for each cell included in the Cache Manager's kernel memory
       list, in the following format:

          Cell <cell> on hosts <database server machines>

       The Cache Manager stores IP addresses, but by default has them translated to hostnames
       before reporting them, by passing them to the cell's name service (such as the Domain Name
       Service or a local host table). The name service sometimes returns hostnames in uppercase
       letters, or an IP address if it cannot resolve a name.

       Using the -numeric flag bypasses the translation to hostnames, which can result in
       significantly faster production of output. The output includes IP addresses only.

EXAMPLES

       The following example shows output for several cells as illustrations of the different
       formats for machine names:

          % fs listcells
          Cell example.com on hosts fs1.example.com fs2.example.com fs3.example.com
          Cell example.org on hosts DB1.FS.EXAMPLE.ORG
             DB2.FS.EXAMPLE.ORG DB3.FS.EXAMPLE.ORG
          Cell example.net on hosts 138.255.0.2 sv3.example.net
