|-name <cell name>||Specifies the fully-qualified cell name of the AFS or DCE cell.|
|-servers <primary servers>+||Specifies the fully-qualified hostnames of all AFS database server machines or DFS Fileset Location (FL) Server machines for the cell named by the -name argument. If FL Server machines are specified, the local machine must be running the AFS/DFS Migration Toolkit Protocol Translator.|
|-linkedcell <linked cell name>||Specifies the name of the AFS cell to link to a DCE cell for the purpose of DFS fileset location.|
|-help||Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.|
The fs newcell command on Windows differs from the Unix version in a few ways.
fs newcell with no arguments discards the existing cell information. The Windows client will reload a cells information the next time it needs the server list for a cell.
Secondly, in addition to accepting the Unix options, fs newcell on Windows accepts the following options:
-dns Adds the new cell to the cache manager, and obtains the VLDB server information from DNS. -registry Adds the new cell to the cache manager, and also saves the cell configuration data in the registry for use the next time the service restarts. -vlport <cell VLDB server port> Specifies an alternate port number at which the cells volume location database servers are listening. -fsport <cell fileserver port> Specifies an alternate port number at which the cells file servers are listening.
The following example changes the machines kernel-resident list of database server machines for the ABC Corporation cell to include the machines db1.abc.com and db2.abc.com:
% fs newcell -name abc.com -servers db1.abc.com db2.abc.com
The following example links the DCE cell dce.abc.com to the AFS cell abc.com. The AFS client contacts the Fileset Location (FL) servers db1.dce.abc.com and db2.dce.abc.com for fileset location information as it interprets a DFS pathname.
% fs newcell -name dce.abc.com \ -servers db1.dce.abc.com db2.dce.abc.com \ -linkedcell abc.com
