NAME

       vos_unlockvldb - Unlocks several locked VLDB entries

SYNOPSIS

       vos unlockvldb [-server <machine name>]
           [-partition <partition name>]
           [-cell <cell name>]
           [-noauth] [-localauth]
           [-verbose] [-encrypt] [-noresolve] [-help]

       vos unlockv [-s <machine name>]
           [-p <partition name>]
           [-c <cell name>]
           [-noa] [-l] [-v] [-e] [-nor] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The vos unlockvldb command releases the lock on the Volume Location
       Database (VLDB) entries indicated by the combination of arguments
       provided:

       ·   To unlock all entries in the VLDB, provide no arguments.

       ·   To unlock all entries that mention a file server machine in a site
           definition, provide its name with the -server argument.

       ·   To unlock all entries that mention a partition on any file server
           machine in a site definition, provide the partition name with the
           -partition argument.

       ·   To unlock all entries that mention a specific site, provide both
           the -server and -partition arguments.

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

CAUTIONS

       Do not use this command under normal circumstances.

       It is useful if VLDB entries for volumes at a certain site are locked
       but there is no reason to suspect inconsistency within the volume or
       between it and the VLDB. Note that it is possible to list information
       from locked VLDB entries, even though they cannot be manipulated in
       other ways.

       The vos lock command locks a VLDB entry so that no one else can perform
       an action that requires writing the VLDB.

OPTIONS

       -server <server name>
           Identifies the file server machine for which to unlock VLDB
           entries. Provide the machine's IP address or its host name (either
           fully qualified or using an unambiguous abbreviation). For details,
           see vos(1).

       -partition <partition name>
           Identifies the partition (on the file server machine specified by
           the -server argument) for which to unlock VLDB entries. 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(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. This option is
           available in OpenAFS versions 1.4.11 or later and 1.5.60 or later.

       -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. This option is available in
           OpenAFS versions 1.4.8 or later and 1.5.35 or later.

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

EXAMPLES

       The following command unlocks all locked entries in the VLDB.

          % vos unlockvldb

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

          % vos unlockvldb -partition a

       The following command unlocks all locked VLDB entries that refer to
       volumes on the /vicepc partition of the file server machine
       "fs3.abc.com".

          % vos unlockvldb -server fs3.abc.com -partition c

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

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