vos_unlock - Unlocks a single VLDB entry
vos unlock -id <volume name or ID>
[-cell <cell name>]
[-verbose] [-encrypt] [-noresolve] [-help]
vos unlock -i <volume name or ID>
[-c <cell name>]
[-noa] [-l] [-v] [-e] [-nor] [-h]
The vos unlock command releases the lock on the Volume Location
Database (VLDB) entry for the indicated volume.
Do not user this command under normal circumstances.
It is useful if the VLDB entry is locked but there is no reason to suspect
inconsistency within the volume or between it and the VLDB. Note that it
is possible to list information from locked VLDB entries, even though they
cannot be manipulated in other ways.
The vos unlockvldb command unlocks several VLDB entries at once, or
even the entire VLDB. The vos lock command locks a VLDB entry so that
no one else can perform an action that requires writing the VLDB.
-id <volume name or ID>
Specifies either the complete name or volume ID number of a volume of any
of the three types.
-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).
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

with multi-homed servers. This option is available in OpenAFS
versions 1.4.8 or later and 1.5.35 or later.

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.
