NAME

       vos_endtrans - Ends a volserver transaction

SYNOPSIS

       vos endtrans -server <machine name>
           -transaction <transaction iD>
           [-cell <cell name>]
           [-noauth] [-localauth]
           [-verbose] [-encrypt] [-noresolve] [-help]

       vos st -s <machine name>
           -t <transaction iD>
           [-c <cell name>]
           [-noa] [-l] [-v] [-e] [-nor] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The vos endtrans command ends a specific transaction on the Volume
       Server for a specific volume. Under normal operation this command
       should never need to be used, but it can be useful to reduce the amount
       of time a volume is offline after an accidental command, or a vos
       process crash.

       Many vos commands, when they interact with a volume, create what is
       called a transaction in order to perform many different operations on a
       volume. If the vos process exits uncleanly, transactions may still stay
       open for the manipulated volumes, and the Volume Server may deny any
       further operations on those volumes while the transactions are still
       open. vos endtrans allows you to end these transactions and make the
       volumes usable again without needing to restart the volserver.

       To find out what transactions are running on a Volume Server and what
       their transaction IDs are, see the vos status command.

CAUTIONS

       This command is not used during normal OpenAFS administration. If used
       improperly, this can negatively impact currently-running vos
       operations. Only run this on a transaction if you are certain that the
       program that created the transaction is no longer running.

OPTIONS

       -server <server name>
           Identifies the file server machine running the Volume Server on
           which to end the transaction. Provide the machine's IP address or
           its host name (either fully qualified or using an unambiguous
           abbreviation). For details, see vos(1).

       -transaction <transaction ID>
           Identifies which transaction to end on the Volume Server. You can
           get a listing of active transactions and their IDs from the output
           of vos status.

       -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).

       -noauth
           Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to the issuer. Do not
           combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, see
           vos(1).

       -localauth
           Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local
           /etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file. The vos command interpreter
           presents it to the Volume Server and Volume Location Server during
           mutual authentication. Do not combine this flag with the -cell
           argument or -noauth flag. For more details, see vos(1).

       -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
           Encrypts 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 DNS name. This is
           very useful when the server address is registered as 127.0.0.1 or
           when dealing with multi-homed servers.

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

EXAMPLES

       The following example illustrates the kind of output that can appear
       when a volume operation was about to be attempted on the Volume Server
       on "fs1.abc.com", but the process performing the operation never
       actually did anything with the volume:

          % vos status fs1.abc.com
          --------------------------------------------
          transaction: 575  created: Fri Oct 16 16:55:54 2009
          attachFlags: offline
          volume: 536871080 partition: /vicepb procedure: TransCreate
          --------------------------------------------
          % vos endtrans fs1.abc.com 575
          % vos status fs1.abc.com
          No active transactions on fs1.abc.com

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

       The issuer must be listed in the /etc/openafs/server/UserList file on
       the machine specified with the -server argument. If the -localauth flag
       is included, the issuer must instead be logged on to a server machine
       as the local superuser "root".
