       backup_addvolset - Creates a new (empty) volume set


       backup addvolset -name <volume set name> [-temporary]
           [-localauth] [-cell <cell name>] [-help]

       backup addvols -n <volume set name> [-t] [-l]
           [-c <cell name>] [-h]


       The backup addvolset command creates a new volume set, by default
       adding it to the Backup Database. It is best that the volume set’s name
       indicate the volume set’s contents; for example, define the volume
       entries in the "user" volume set to match all user volumes. The volume
       set name must be unique within the Backup Database of the local cell.

       After issuing this command, issue the backup addvolentry command to
       define the volume entries in the volume set.

       Sometimes it is convenient to create volume sets without recording them
       permanently in the Backup Database, for example when using the backup
       volsetrestore command to restore a group of volumes that were not
       necessarily backed up together. To create a temporary volume set,
       include the -temporary flag. A temporary volume set exists only during
       the lifetime of the current interactive session, so the flag is
       effective only when used during an interactive session (opened by
       issuing the backup interactive command). If it is included when the
       command is issued at the regular command shell prompt, the command
       appears to succeed, but the volume set is not created. As noted, a
       temporary volume set ceases to exist when the current interactive
       session ends, or use the backup delvolset command to delete it before

       One advantage of temporary volume sets is that the backup addvolset
       command, and any backup addvolentry commands subsequently used to add
       volume entries to it, complete more quickly than for regular volume
       sets, because no records are created in the Backup Database.


       -name <volume set name>
           Names the new volume set. The name can include up to 31 of any
           character other than the period. Avoid other metacharacters as

           current interactive session. It is not added to the Backup

           Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local
           /etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file. The backup command interpreter
           presents it to the Backup Server, Volume Server and VL Server
           during mutual authentication. Do not combine this flag with the
           -cell argument. For more details, see backup(8).

       -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 backup(8).

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


       The following command creates a volume set called "sys":

          % backup addvolset sys


       The issuer must be listed in the /etc/openafs/server/UserList file on
       every machine where the Backup Server is running, or must be logged
       onto a server machine as the local superuser "root" if the -localauth
       flag is included.
