vos_setmaxacl - Sets the maximum access list for a volume.
vos setmaxacl -id <volume name or ID> -acl <access list entries+> [-clear] [-negative] [-remove] [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-auth] [-localauth] [-encrypt [<yes|no>]] [-verbose] [-noresolve] [-config <configuration file>] [-help]
The vos setmaxacl command sets the maximum access list on the specified volume.
All access to an object in the volume will be checked against this list,
in addition to the access list on the object itself.
New volumes have an implicit maximum access list of
This command is not effective on read-only or backup volumes.
Identifies the volume on which to operate, either by its complete name or volume ID number.
Defines a list of one or more ACL entries. For more details on specifying access list entries, refer to the fs_setacl(1) documentation.
Removes all existing entries on the ACL before adding the entries specified with the -acl argument.
Indicates that the maximum ACL for this volume should be removed. Cannot be used in conjunction with the -acl option.
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,
Obtains an authentication token using the server encryption key with the highest key version number in the local /etc/yfs/server/KeyFileExt file. The resulting token never expires and has Super User privileges. Do not combine this flag with the -cell argument or -noauth flag. For more details, see vos(1).
Use the calling user's tokens from the kernel or as obtained using the active Kerberos ticket granting ticket to communicate with the Volume Server and Location Service. This is the default if neither -localauth nor -noauth is given.
Since this option is the default, it is usually not useful for running single command line operations. However, it can be useful when running commands via vos_interactive(1) or vos_source(1), since otherwise it would be impossible to switch from, for example, -localauth back to using regular tokens during a bulk operation.
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.
Enables or disables encrytion for the command so that the operation's results are not transmitted across the network in clear text.
Shows all servers as IP addresses instead of the reverse DNS lookup hostname.
-noresolve useful when troubleshooting
no such volume and
volume moved errors.
Set the location of the configuration file to be used. The default file is /etc/yfs/yfs-client.conf.
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.
This command produces no output other than error messages.
To restrict access to the volume
regardless of any directory or file access lists:
% vos setmaxacl -id admin_data -acl system:administrators all
The issuer must be listed in the /etc/yfs/server/UserListExt file on the File Server specified by the -server argument and on each Location Server. If the -localauth flag is included, the issuer must instead be logged on to a server with an account capable of reading the /etc/yfs/server/KeyFileExt file.
