BACKUP_ADDHOST(8)	     AFS Command Reference	     BACKUP_ADDHOST(8)

       backup_addhost - Adds a Tape Coordinator entry to the Backup Database

       backup addhost -tapehost <tape machine name>
	   [-portoffset <TC port offset>]
	   [-localauth] [-cell <cell name>] [-help]

       backup addh -t <tape machine name>
	   [-p <TC port offset>]
	   [-l] [-c <cell name>] [-h]

       The backup addhost command creates a Tape Coordinator entry in the
       Backup Database. The entry records

       ·   The host name of the Tape Coordinator machine where the Tape
	   Coordinator (butc) process runs, as specified with the -tapehost

       ·   The Tape Coordinator's port offset number, as specified with the
	   -portoffset argument. An entry for the port offset must also appear
	   in the /usr/afs/backup/tapeconfig file on the Tape Coordinator
	   machine, where it is mapped to a UNIX device name (for a tape
	   device) or pathname (for a backup data file).

       Each Tape Coordinator must have its own port offset number, and the
       command fails if a Backup Database entry already exists for the
       requested port offset number. To display existing Tape Coordinator
       entries, use the backup listhosts command.

       -tapehost <tape machine name>
	   Specifies the fully-qualified hostname of the machine for which to
	   create a Tape Coordinator entry in the Backup Database. The machine
	   must have an entry in either the cell's naming service (such as the
	   Domain Name Service) or the host file (/etc/hosts or equivalent) on
	   the machine where the command is issued.

       -portoffset <TC port offset>
	   Specifies the Tape Coordinator's port offset number. Provide an
	   integer from the range 0 through 58510, or omit this argument to
	   use the default value of 0 (zero). The value must match the port
	   offset number recorded for the same combination of Tape Coordinator
	   and tape device or file in the /usr/afs/backup/tapeconfig file on
	   the Tape Coordinator machine named by the -tapehost argument.

	   Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local
	   /usr/afs/etc/KeyFile 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).

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

       The following command creates an entry in the Backup Database that
       assigns port offset number 4 to a Tape Coordinator running on the
       machine "":

	  % backup addhost -tapehost -portoffset 4

       The following command creates a Backup Database entry that assigns port
       offset number 0 to a Tape Coordinator on the machine "":

	  % backup addhost

       The issuer must be listed in the /usr/afs/etc/UserList file on every
       machine where the Backup Server is running, or must be logged onto a
       server machine as the local superuser "root" if the -localauth flag is

       backup(8), backup_delhost(8), backup_listhosts(8)
