vos_remaddrs(1) removes a file server machine's entry from the VLDB


vos remaddrs -uuid <UUID of server>
    [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth]
    [-verbose] [-encrypt] [-noresolve]
    [-config <config directory>]

The vos remaddrs command removes a server entry from the Volume Location Database (VLDB). 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.


-uuid <UUID of server>
The unique ID as provided by the "vos listaddrs -printuuid" command.


The following command removes the VLDB server entry for the file server with the addresses and

   $ vos remaddrs -uuid 008f157e-bad0-157c-0ffee-357c4d1faa77 -verbose
   vos: Removing UUID with addresses:
   UUID: 008f157e-bad0-157c-0ffee-357c4d1faa77


Issuer must be listed in the /etc/openafs/server/UserList file on each database server machine.
