NAME

       backup_addvolset - Creates a new (empty) volume set

SYNOPSIS

       backup addvolset -name <volume set name> [-temporary]
           [-localauth] [-cell <cell name>] [-help]

       backup addvols -n <volume set name> [-t] [-l]
           [-c <cell name>] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The backup addvolset command creates a new volume set, by default adding it to the Backup
       Database. It is best that the volume set's name indicate the volume set's contents; for
       example, define the volume entries in the "user" volume set to match all user volumes. The
       volume set name must be unique within the Backup Database of the local cell.

       After issuing this command, issue the backup addvolentry command to define the volume
       entries in the volume set.

       Sometimes it is convenient to create volume sets without recording them permanently in the
       Backup Database, for example when using the backup volsetrestore command to restore a
       group of volumes that were not necessarily backed up together. To create a temporary
       volume set, include the -temporary flag. A temporary volume set exists only during the
       lifetime of the current interactive session, so the flag is effective only when used
       during an interactive session (opened by issuing the backup interactive command). If it is
       included when the command is issued at the regular command shell prompt, the command
       appears to succeed, but the volume set is not created. As noted, a temporary volume set
       ceases to exist when the current interactive session ends, or use the backup delvolset
       command to delete it before that.

       One advantage of temporary volume sets is that the backup addvolset command, and any
       backup addvolentry commands subsequently used to add volume entries to it, complete more
       quickly than for regular volume sets, because no records are created in the Backup
       Database.

OPTIONS

       -name <volume set name>
           Names the new volume set. The name can include up to 31 of any character other than
           the period. Avoid other metacharacters as well.

       -temporary
           Creates a volume set that exists only within the context of the current interactive
           session. It is not added to the Backup Database.

       -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 backup(8).

       -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 backup(8).

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

EXAMPLES

       The following command creates a volume set called "sys":

          % backup addvolset sys

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.
