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 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 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.
