SYNOPSIS

venus-setup [comma,separated,list,of,servers] [cachesize in kb]

DESCRIPTION

The venus-setup command takes a list of servers separated by commas, one of which must be the SCM and a cache size given in kilobytes. NOTE: at least one server must be specified. And if only one server is specified, it must be the SCM for the Coda Cell. Venus-setup then performs the following operations:

Creates the /coda mount point if not present.

Creates /usr/coda if not present.

Creates necessary subdirectories under /usr/coda if not present.

Creates /usr/coda/etc/vstab with parameters given on the command line.

Creates /dev/cfs0 if not already present.

Adds Coda filesystem port numbers to /etc/servers if not present.

EXAMPLE

Venus-setup Mickey,Minnie,Goofy 10000

Sets up, /usr/coda/etc/vstab, for venus to contact either Mickey, Minnie or Goofy and configures venus with a 10MB cache.

BUGS

The [cachesize in kb] option to venus-setup is not very smart. In fact, it is quite dumb. No abbreviations are allowed after the number and the number is taken literally to be kilobytes.

Venus-setup will happily overwrite an existing, /usr/coda/etc/vstab, without warning.

FILES

/etc/services: the Internet network services list. /usr/coda/etc/vstab: the VenuS TABle specification file.
