NAME

vos_remsite - Removes a read-only site definition from a VLDB entry

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

vos remsite -server <machine name>
-partition <partition name>
-id <volume name or ID>
[-cell <cell name>]
[-noauth] [-localauth]
[-verbose] [-encrypt] [-noresolve] [-help]

vos rems -s <machine name>
-p <partition name>
-i <volume name or ID>
[-c <cell name>]
[-noa] [-l] [-v] [-e] [-nor] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

The vos remsite command removes the read-only replication site specified by the -machine and -partition arguments from the Volume Location Database (VLDB) entry for the indicated volume, which is read/write.

This command is useful for removing read-only sites that were mistakenly created with the vos addsite command, before the vos release command actually releases them. If a read-only copy already exists at the site, it is not affected. However, if this read-only site was the last site housing any version of the volume, then the entire VLDB entry is removed, even if a copy of the read-only version still actually exists at the site. The VL Server does not correct the discrepancy until the vos syncserv and vos syncvldb commands are run.

CAUTIONS

Do not use this command as the standard way to remove a read-only volume, because it can create a discrepancy between the VLDB and the volumes on file server machines. Use the vos remove command instead.

OPTIONS

-server <server name> Specifies the file server machine portion of the site definition to remove. Provide the machine’s IP address or its host name (either fully qualified or using an unambiguous abbreviation). For details, see vos(1).
-partition <partition name> Specifies the partition name portion of the site definition to remove. Provide the partition’s complete name with preceding slash (for example, /vicepa) or use one of the three acceptable abbreviated forms. For details, see vos(1).
-id <volume name or id> Specifies either the complete name or volume ID number of the read/write volume to remove.
-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 command’s execution. If this argument is omitted, only warnings and error messages appear.
-encrypt Encrypts the command so that the operation’s 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.

EXAMPLES

The following command removes the mistakenly defined read-only site /viceph on the file server machine fs5.abc.com from the VLDB entry for the volume root.cell.



   % vos remsite -server fs5.abc.com -partition h -id root.cell



PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

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.
