vos_syncvldb - Verifies VLDB entries for volumes residing at specified site
vos syncvldb [-server <machine name>]
[-partition <partition name>]
[-volume <volume name or ID>]
[-dryrun] [-cell <cell name>]
[-verbose] [-encrypt] [-noresolve] [-help]

[-p <partition name>]
[-vo <volume name or ID>]

[-noa] [-l] [-ve] [-e] [-nor] [-h]
The vos syncvldb command verifies that the status of the volumes housed
either on all partitions on the file server machine specified by the
-server argument, or on the single partition specified by the
-server and -partition arguments, is recorded correctly in the
VLDB. If the -volume argument is included to indicate a single volume,
the command compares only its status on the file server machine with its
If the -volume argument is not included, the command interpreter
obtains from the Volume Server a list of the volumes that reside on each
partition, then changes information in the VLDB as necessary to reflect
their state on the partition. For example, it creates or updates a VLDB
entry when it finds a volume for which the VLDB entry is missing or
incomplete. However, if there is already a VLDB entry that defines a
different location for the volume, or there are irreconcilable conflicts
with other VLDB entries, it instead writes a message about the conflict to
the standard error stream. The command never removes volumes from the file
To achieve complete VLDB consistency, run this command on all file server
machines in the cell, and then run the vos syncserv command on all file
server machines in the cell.
Using the -volume argument basically combines the effects of this
command with those of the vos syncserv command, for a single
volume. The command not only verifies that the VLDB entry is correct for
the specified volume type (read/write, backup, or read-only), but also
checks that any related volume types mentioned in the VLDB entry actually
exist at the site listed in the entry. It is not necessary to provide the
-server argument (and optionally, -partition argument); if one or
both is provided, the results are reliable only if they specify the actual
location of the volume indicated by the -volume argument.
-server <server name>
Identifies the file server machine housing the volumes for which to verify
VLDB entries. 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 housing the volumes for which to verify VLDB
entries. Provide the -server argument along with this one. Provide the
partitions complete name with preceding slash (for example, /vicepa)
or use one of the three acceptable abbreviated forms. For details, see
-volume <volume name or ID>
Specifies the name or volume ID number of a single volume for which to
verify the VLDB entry. This argument can be combined with the -server
(and optionally, the -partition) argument.
-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 command verifies the VLDB entry for each volume
stored on the file server machine fs4.abc.com.
% vos syncvldb fs4.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.
