FS_NEWCELL(1)		     AFS Command Reference		 FS_NEWCELL(1)

NAME
       fs_newcell - Changes the	kernel-resident	list of	a cell's database
       servers

SYNOPSIS
       fs newcell -name	<cell name> -servers <primary servers>+
	   [-linkedcell	<linked	cell name>] [-help]

       fs n -n <cell name> -s <primary servers>+
	   [-l <linked cell name>] [-h]

DESCRIPTION
       The fs newcell command removes the Cache	Manager's kernel-resident list
       of database server machines for the cell	specified by the -name
       argument	and replaces it	with the database server machines named	by the
       -servers	argument.

       Each time the machine reboots, the Cache	Manager	constructs the kernel
       list of cells and database server machines by reading the local
       /usr/local/etc/openafs/CellServDB file. This command does not change
       the CellServDB file, so any changes made	with it	persist	only until the
       next reboot, unless the issuer also edits the file. The output of the
       fs listcells command reflects changes made with this command, because
       that command consults the kernel-resident list rather than the
       CellServDB file.

       This command can	introduce a completely new cell	into the kernel-
       resident	list, but cannot make a	cell inaccessible (it is not possible
       to remove a cell's entry	from the kernel-resident list by providing no
       values for the -server argument). To make a cell	inaccessible, remove
       its entry from the CellServDB file and reboot the machine.

       If the -name argument names a DCE cell, then the	-servers argument
       names DFS Fileset Location (FL) Server machines.	The -linkedcell
       argument	specifies the name of the AFS cell to link to a	DCE cell for
       the purpose of DFS fileset location.

CAUTIONS
       Some commands, such as the aklog	or klog.krb5 commands, work correctly
       only when the information is accurate for a cell	in both	the CellServDB
       file and	the kernel-resident list.

OPTIONS
       -name <cell name>
	   Specifies the fully-qualified cell name of the AFS or DCE cell.

       -servers	<primary servers>+
	   Specifies the fully-qualified hostnames of all AFS database server
	   machines or DFS Fileset Location (FL) Server	machines for the cell
	   named by the	-name argument.	If FL Server machines are specified,
	   the local machine must be running the AFS/DFS Migration Toolkit
	   Protocol Translator.

       -linkedcell <linked cell	name>
	   Specifies the name of the AFS cell to link to a DCE cell for	the
	   purpose of DFS fileset location.

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

WINDOWS
       The fs newcell command on Windows differs from the Unix version in a
       few ways.

       fs newcell with no arguments discards the existing cell information.
       The Windows client will reload a	cell's information the next time it
       needs the server	list for a cell.

       Secondly, in addition to	accepting the Unix options, fs newcell on
       Windows accepts the following options:

       -dns
	   Adds	the new	cell to	the cache manager, and obtains the VLDB	server
	   information from DNS.

       -registry
	   Adds	the new	cell to	the cache manager, and also saves the cell
	   configuration data in the registry for use the next time the
	   service restarts.

       -vlport <cell VLDB server port>
	   Specifies an	alternate port number at which the cell's volume
	   location database servers are listening.

       -fsport <cell fileserver	port>
	   Specifies an	alternate port number at which the cell's file servers
	   are listening.

EXAMPLES
       The following example changes the machine's kernel-resident list	of
       database	server machines	for the	ABC Corporation	cell to	include	the
       machines	"db1.abc.com" and "db2.abc.com":

	  % fs newcell -name abc.com -servers db1.abc.com db2.abc.com

       The following example links the DCE cell	"dce.abc.com" to the AFS cell
       "abc.com". The AFS client contacts the Fileset Location (FL) servers
       "db1.dce.abc.com" and "db2.dce.abc.com" for fileset location
       information as it interprets a DFS pathname.

	  % fs newcell -name dce.abc.com \
	      -servers db1.dce.abc.com db2.dce.abc.com \
	      -linkedcell abc.com
