       backup_listhosts - Lists Tape Coordinators registered in the Backup

       backup listhosts [-localauth] [-cell <cell name>] [-help]

       backup listh [-l] [-c <cell name>] [-h]

       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

       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.

	   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.

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

       ·   The hostname of the machine housing the Tape Coordinator. The
	   format of this name depends on the hostname format used when the
	   backup addhost command was issued.

       ·   The Tape Coordinator's port offset number.

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

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

	  % backup listhosts
	  Tape hosts:
	      Host, port offset 0
	      Host, port offset 1
	      Host, port offset 4
	      Host, port offset 3

       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_addhost(8), backup_delhost(8), backup_status(8)
