       mmlocate - NetWorker media location reporting command

       mmlocate [ -s server ] [ -l
	{ -n volname | -i volid | location }] [ -L ] [ -d location ]
       [  -c  { -n volname | -i volid }] [ -u { -n volname| -i volid| location

       The mmlocate command is used to access and manage the  volume  location
       information contained in the media database.  The information contained
       in a volume's location field is meant to give the user an idea of where
       the volume can physically be found.  Other NetWorker commands will dis‐
       play the location along with the volume name (see the versions sub-com‐
       mand  of	 recover(8)).	Any  user  can	use  this  command with the -l
       (default) or -L options.	 The -c, -d and -u options are limited to Net‐
       Worker administrators (see nsr(8)).  -l is assumed by mmlocate if a -L,
       -c, -d or -u option is not specified.

       Running mmlocate without any arguments  lists  all  volumes  and	 their
       locations for the specified server (if you do not specify a server, the
       current host is used).

       Note that each time nsrjb(8) moves a piece of media inside  a  jukebox,
       the location of a volume is set to the name of the jukebox.  When using
       storage nodes, the name of the jukebox is used  to  indicate  on	 which
       node the volume can be mounted.	Hence, the first portion of this field
       containing the jukebox name should not be changed.  When using  volumes
       on  a  storage node that are not contained within a jukebox, this field
       can be used to indicate on which node a volume should  be  mounted,  by
       giving  it  a  value  of any remote device on that node.	 See nsr_stor‐
       age_node(5) for additional detail on storage nodes.

       -c     Clears the location field for the specified volume.

       -d location
	      Deletes all volumes associated with the specified	 location.   A
	      confirmation  prompt  appears prior to the deletion of each vol‐

       -i volid
	      Restricts the mmlocate operation	to  the	 specified  volume  ID

       -l     Lists  entries.	Performs  a  database query using the supplied
	      volume name, volume ID or location.

	      If a volume name or volume id is given, then only	 the  volume's
	      location	information  is displayed.  If a location is provided,
	      then only volumes in that location are displayed.	 When  the  -l
	      option  is  used	without	 specifying  any other options (volume
	      name, volume id, or location), volumes without  a	 set  location
	      are displayed.

       -L     Lists all locations found in the database.

       -n volname
	      Restricts the operation to the volume name (volname) listed.

       -s server
	      Accesses the server's media database.

       -u     Updates  the  location for a volume.  Locations are limited to a
	      maximum length of 64 characters.	The -n volname or -i volid and
	      location options must be used in conjunction with the -u option.

       Update  the  media  database  to show that volume Offsite.011 is now at
       location 'Media Vault'
	      mmlocate -u -n Offsite.011 'Media Vault'

       Delete volumes at location 'Media Shelf 6'
	      mmlocate -d 'Media Shelf 6'

       Delete location information for volume NonFull.001
	      mmlocate -c -n NonFull.001

       List the location of volume NonFull.001
	      mmlocate -n NonFull.001

       List all volumes stored in the location 'Media Vault'
	      mmlocate 'Media Vault'

       Server server does not support remote update
	      If you are running mmlocate against an old server, you  are  not
	      allowed  to  use	the  -u or -c options.	You must login to that
	      server and run the mmlocate program there.
