|o||If the -id argument names the read/write volume (that is, specifies the volumes base name), both it and the associated backup volume are removed from the partition that houses them. The -server and -partition arguments are optional, because there can be only one read/write site. When the volume is removed, the site information is also removed from the VLDB entry. The read/write and backup volume ID numbers no longer appear in the output from the vos listvldb or vos examine commands, but they are preserved internally. Read-only sites, if any, are not affected, but cannot be changed unless a read/write site is again defined. The site count reported by the vos examine and vos listvldb commands as number of sites decrements by one. The entire VLDB entry is removed if there are no read-only sites.|
|o||If the -id argument names a read-only volume, it is removed from the partition that houses it, and the corresponding site information is removed from the VLDB entry. The site count reported by the vos examine and vos listvldb commands as number of sites decrements by one for each volume you remove. If there is more than one read-only site, the -server argument (and optionally -partition argument) must be used to specify the site from which to remove the volume. If there is only one read-only site, the -id argument is sufficient; if there is also no read/write volume in this case, the entire VLDB entry is removed.|
|o||If the -id argument names a backup volume, it is removed from the partition that houses it. The -server and -partition arguments are optional, because there can be only one backup site. The backup volume ID number no longer appears in the output from the vos listvldb command or in the corresponding portion of the output from the vos examine command, but is preserved internally.|
-server <server name> Identifies the file server machine that houses the volume to remove. It is necessary only when the -id argument names a read-only volume that exists at multiple sites. Provide the machines IP address or its host name (either fully qualified or using an unambiguous abbreviation). For details, see vos(1). -partition <partition name> Identifies the partition (on the file server machine specified by the -server argument) that houses the volume to remove. Provide the partitions complete name with preceding slash (for example, /vicepa) or use one of the three acceptable abbreviated forms. For details, see vos(1).
Including this argument is necessary only when the -id argument names a read-only volume that exists at multiple sites. Provide the -server argument along with this one.
-id <volume name or id> Identifies the volume to remove, either by its complete name or volume ID number. If identifying a read-only or backup volume by name, include the appropriate extension (.readonly or .backup). -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 vos(1). -noauth Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. Do not combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, see vos(1). -localauth Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /usr/local/etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file. The vos command interpreter presents it to the Volume Server and Volume Location Server during mutual authentication. Do not combine this flag with the -cell argument or -noauth flag. For more details, see vos(1). -verbose Produces on the standard output stream a detailed trace of the commands execution. If this argument is omitted, only warnings and error messages appear. -encrypt Encrypts the command so that the operations results are not transmitted across the network in clear text. This option is available in OpenAFS versions 1.4.11 or later and 1.5.60 or later. -noresolve Shows all servers as IP addresses instead of the DNS name. This is very useful when the server address is registered as 127.0.0.1 or when dealing with multi-homed servers. This option is available in OpenAFS versions 1.4.8 or later and 1.5.35 or later. -help Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.
The following example removes the read/write volume user.terry and its backup version, if any.
% vos remove -id user.terry
The following example removes the read-only volume root.afs.readonly from one of its sites, the /vicepa partition on the file server machine fs1.abc.com.
% vos remove fs1.abc.com a root.afs.readonly
The issuer must be listed in the /usr/local/etc/openafs/server/UserList file on the machine specified with the -server argument and on each database server machine. If the -localauth flag is included, the issuer must instead be logged on to a server machine as the local superuser root.
