VOS_BACKUP(1)		     AFS Command Reference		 VOS_BACKUP(1)

       vos_backup - Creates a backup volume for	a single read/write volume

       vos backup -id <volume name or ID>
	   [-cell <cell	name>]
	   [-noauth] [-localauth] [-verbose]
	   [-encrypt] [-noresolve] [-help]

       vos backup -i <volume name or ID> [-c <cell name>]
	   [-noa] [-l] [-v] [-e] [-nor]	[-h]

       The vos backup command clones the indicated read/write volume to	create
       a backup	version, placing it at the same	site as	the read/write
       version.	The backup volume's name is the	same as	the read/write
       source's	with the addition of the ".backup" extension. Its volume ID
       number is the one allocated for it in the Volume	Location Database
       (VLDB) when the read/write source was created with the vos create
       command.	If a backup version already exists, the	new clone replaces it.

       To create a backup version of multiple volumes, use the vos backupsys

       -id <volume name	or ID>
	   Specifies either the	complete name or volume	ID number of the
	   read/write source volume.

       -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 vos(1).

	   Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. Do not
	   combine this	flag with the -localauth flag. For more	details, see

	   Constructs a	server ticket using a key from the local
	   /usr/local/etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file. The vos command
	   interpreter presents	it to the Volume Server	and Volume Location
	   Server during mutual	authentication.	Do not combine this flag with
	   the -cell argument or -noauth flag. For more	details, see vos(1).

	   Produces on the standard output stream a detailed trace of the
	   command's execution.	If this	argument is omitted, only warnings and
	   error messages appear.

	   Encrypts the	command	so that	the operation's	results	are not
	   transmitted across the network in clear text. This option is
	   available in	OpenAFS	versions 1.4.11	or later and 1.5.60 or later.

	   Shows all servers as	IP addresses instead of	the DNS	name. This is
	   very	useful when the	server address is registered as or
	   when	dealing	with multi-homed servers. This option is available in
	   OpenAFS versions 1.4.8 or later and 1.5.35 or later.

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

       The following message confirms that the command succeeded:

	  Created backup volume	for I<volume name>

       The following example creates a backup version of the volume

	  % vos	backup user.smith
	  Created backup volume	for user.smith

       The issuer must be listed in the	/usr/local/etc/openafs/server/UserList
       file on the machine specified with the -server argument and on each
       database	server machine.	If the -localauth flag is included, the	issuer
       must instead be logged on to a server machine as	the local superuser
