VOS_CHANGEADDR(1)	     AFS Command Reference	     VOS_CHANGEADDR(1)

       vos_changeaddr -	Changes	or removes a file server machine's entry in
       the VLDB

       vos changeaddr -oldaddr <original IP address>
	   [-newaddr <new IP address>] [-remove] [-force]
	   [-cell <cell	name>] [-noauth] [-localauth]
	   [-verbose] [-encrypt] [-noresolve] [-help]

       vos changea -o <original	IP address>
	   [-ne	<new IP	address>] [-r] [-f]
	   [-c <cell name>]
	   [-noa] [-l] [-v] [-e] [-nor]	[-h]

       The vos changeaddr command removes a server entry from the Volume
       Location	Database (VLDB)	when the -remove flag is combined with the
       -oldaddr	argument. There	must be	no VLDB	entries	that list the machine
       as a site for any version of a volume (if necessary, use	the vos	move
       or vos remove command to	move or	remove volumes). It is appropriate to
       remove a	VLDB server entry when removing	the corresponding file server
       machine from service.

       To display all VLDB server entries, use the vos listaddrs command.

       Combining the command's -oldaddr	and -newaddr arguments is no longer
       the appropriate way to change the IP address registered for a file
       server machine. Furthermore, if a machine is multihomed and its server
       entry includes several addresses, then the address specified with the
       -newaddr	argument replaces all of the addresses currently listed	in the
       server entry that includes the address specified	by the -oldaddr
       argument. This effectively makes	the machine single-homed with respect
       to AFS operations, which	is probably not	the desired result.

       The recommended method for changing the IP addresses in a server	entry
       is instead to restart the "fs" process group (which includes the	File
       Server) after using the utilities provided by the operating system to
       reconfigure the machine's network interfaces. For a description of how
       the File	Server constructs and registers	a list of its network
       interfaces in the VLDB, see sysid(5).

       If, counter to recommended usage, the command is	used to	change the IP
       address in a server entry, it does not also change the names of machine
       entries in the Protection Database. Operations fail when	they refer to
       a protection group that has an obsolete IP address in it. Use the pts
       rename command to change	the names of machine entries that correspond
       to the addresses	changed	with this command. Changing the	address	of a
       database	server machine also requires updating the client and server
       versions	of the CellServDB file on every	machine.

       -oldaddr	<original IP address>
	   Specifies the IP address currently registered for the file server
	   machine in the VLDB server entry. If	there are multiple addresses
	   registered for a multihomed machine,	use any	of them	to identify
	   the server entry.

       -newaddr	<new IP	address>
	   Specifies the new IP	address	that replaces all currently registered

	   Unless the -force option is given, vos changeaddr will refuse to
	   change addresses when the address given in -oldaddr is registered
	   with	a multihomed server entry in the VLDB. See "CAUTIONS".

	   Removes from	the VLDB the server entry that includes	the address
	   specified by	the -oldaddr argument.

	   Overrides the multihomed server entry check when the	-oldaddr and
	   -newaddr options are	combined. The -force flag is provided for
	   historical compatibility and	is not recommended.

       -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 command removes the VLDB server entry that	includes the
       IP address

	  % vos	changeaddr -oldaddr -remove

       Issuer must be listed in	the /usr/local/etc/openafs/server/UserList
       file on the machine specified with the -oldaddr argument	and on each
       database	server machine.
