NAME

vos_unlockall - Unlocks all volumes or those located at a specific site

SYNOPSIS

vos unlockall [-server <machine name>] [-partition <partition name>] [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-auth] [-localauth] [-encrypt [<yes|no>]] [-verbose] [-noresolve] [-config <configuration file>] [-help]

DESCRIPTION

The vos unlockall command releases the lock on the volumes indicated by the combination of arguments provided:

To unlock a single volume, use the vos unlock command instead.

CAUTIONS

Do not used this command under normal circumstances.

It is useful if the volume is locked but there is no reason to suspect inconsistency within the volume or between it and the Location Service. Note that it is possible to list information for locked volumes even though they cannot be manipulated in other ways.

The vos lock command locks a volume so that no one else can perform an action that modifies the volume location information.

OPTIONS

-server <server name>

Identifies the File Server for which to unlock volumes. Provide a fully qualified host name, an IP address or UUID as reported by vos listfs.

-partition <partition name>

Identifies the partition (on the File Server specified by the -server argument) for which to unlock volumes. Provide the partition's 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.

-noauth

Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. Do not combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, see vos.

-localauth

Obtains an authentication token using the server encryption key with the highest key version number in the local /etc/yfs/server/KeyFileEx 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.

-auth

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 or vos source, since otherwise it would be impossible to switch from, for example, -localauth back to using regular tokens during a bulk operation.

-verbose

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.

-encrypt [<yes|no>]

Enables or disables encrytion for the command so that the operation's results are not transmitted across the network in clear text.

-noresolve

Shows all servers as IP addresses instead of the reverse DNS lookup hostname. -noresolve useful when troubleshooting no such volume and volume moved errors.

-config <configuration file>

Set the location of the configuration file to be used. The default file is /etc/yfs/yfs-client.conf.

-help

Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

EXAMPLES

The following command unlocks all locked volumes.

   % vos unlockall

The following command unlocks all locked volumes that mention the /vicepa partition in a site definition.

   % vos unlockall -partition a

The following command unlocks all locked volumes that mention the /vicepc partition of the File Server fs3.your-cell-name.com.

   % vos unlockall -server fs3.your-cell-name.com -partition c

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

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.
