Manual Reference Pages - VOS_SYNCSERV (1)
vos_syncserv - Verifies VLDB entries that mention a specified site
vos syncserv -server <machine name>
[-partition <partition name>]
[-cell <cell name>]
[-verbose] [-encrypt] [-noresolve] [-help]
vos syncs -s <machine name>
[-p <partition name>]
[-c <cell name>] [-d]
[-noa] [-l] [-v] [-e] [-nor] [-h]
The vos syncserv command verifies that each volume mentioned in a VLDB
entry actually exists at the site indicated in the entry. It checks all
VLDB entries that mention a read/write, read-only, or backup site either
on any partition on the file server machine specified by the -server
argument, or on the one partition specified by the -server and
-partition arguments. Note that the command can end up inspecting sites
other than those specified by the -server and -partition arguments,
if there are versions of the volume at sites other than the one specified.
The command alters any incorrect information in the VLDB, unless there is
an irreconcilable conflict with other VLDB entries. In that case, it
writes a message to the standard error stream instead. The command never
removes volumes from file server machines.
To achieve complete VLDB consistency, first run the vos syncvldb
command on all file server machines in the cell, then run this command on
all file server machines in the cell.
-server <server name>
Identifies the file server machine mentioned in each VLDB entry to
check. Provide the machines IP address or its host name (either fully
qualified or using an unambiguous abbreviation). For details, see
-partition <partition name>
Identifies the partition mentioned in each VLDB entry to check. 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).
-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).
Show the actions which would be taken, but do not make changes.
Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. Do not
combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, see
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).
Produces on the standard output stream a detailed trace of the commands
execution. If this argument is omitted, only warnings and error messages
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.
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.
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are
The following example verifies the VLDB entries in which a site definition
mentions the file server machine fs3.abc.com.
% vos syncserv -server fs3.abc.com
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.
