       backup_delhost - Deletes a Tape Coordinator entry from the Backup

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

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

       The backup delhost command deletes the indicated Tape Coordinator entry
       from the Backup Database. It is then impossible to submit backup
       operations to that Tape Coordinator, even if it is still running. To
       keep configuration information consistent, also remove the
       corresponding entry from the /usr/afs/backup/tapeconfig file on the
       Tape Coordinator machine.

       To list the Tape Coordinator machines and port offsets defined in the
       Backup Database, issue the backup listhosts command.

       -tapehost <tape machine name>
	   Specifies the hostname of the machine housing the Tape Coordinator
	   to delete.

       -portoffset <TC port offset>
	   Specifies the port offset number of the Tape Coordinator to delete.
	   If omitted, it defaults to 0. If provided, it is an integer between
	   0 (zero) and 58510, and must match the port offset number assigned
	   to the same combination of Tape Coordinator and tape device or file
	   in the /usr/afs/backup/tapeconfig file on the Tape Coordinator
	   machine indicated 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 deletes the Backup Database entry for the Tape
       Coordinator with port offset 2 on the Tape Coordinator machine

	  % backup delhost -tapehost -portoffset 2

       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
