NAME

backup_listhosts - Lists Tape Coordinators registered in the Backup Database

SYNOPSIS

backup listhosts [-localauth] [-cell <cell name>] [-config <configuration file>] [-help]

DESCRIPTION

The backup listhosts command displays the Backup Database record of the port offset numbers defined for Tape Coordinator machines. A Tape Coordinator must have an entry in the list to be available for backup operations.

The existence of an entry does not necessarily indicate that the Tape Coordinator process (butc) is currently running at that port offset. To check, issue the backup status command.

OPTIONS

-localauth

Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /etc/yfs/server/KeyFileExt file. The backup command interpreter presents it to the Backup Server, Volume Server and VL Server during mutual authentication. Do not combine this flag with the -cell argument. For more details, see backup(8).

-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 backup(8).

-config <configuration file>

Sets 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.

OUTPUT

After a Tape hosts: header, the output reports two things about each Tape Coordinator currently defined in the Backup Database:

The Tape Coordinators appear in the order in which they were added to the Backup Database.

EXAMPLES

The following example shows the result of the command in the Example Corporation cell:

   % backup listhosts
   Tape hosts:
       Host backup1.example.com, port offset 0
       Host backup1.example.com, port offset 1
       Host backup3.example.com, port offset 4
       Host backup2.example.com, port offset 3

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

The issuer must be listed in the /etc/yfs/server/UserListExt file on every machine where the Backup Server is running, or must be logged onto a server with an account capable of reading the /etc/yfs/server/KeyFileExt file if the -localauth flag is included. =head1 SEE ALSO
