    Command:

    CellAlias

    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The CellAlias file is used by the Unix cache manager when it is using
           Dynamic Root (-dynroot) mode. It creates symbolic links in the dynamic
           root (/afs) that link an alias for a cell (usually a short name) to the
           full name for the cell.
    
           The most common use of this configuration file is to allow short names
           for frequently used cell names. Traditionally, such short names would
           be created by the local AFS administrator by creating symbolic links in
           the "root.afs" volume. Such symlinks do not appear when Dynamic Root is
           enabled because, with Dynamic Root, the Cache Manager does not mount or
           look at the "root.afs" volume. CellAlias is a replacement that allows
           such short names to be created under the client control.
    
           If you configure a short name mapping such as "ir" for
           "ir.stanford.edu", the mapping of ".ir" to ".ir.stanford.edu" for the
           read/write version of the "root.cell" volume for that cell will be
           created automatically. There is no need to list that alias separately.
           afsd will report an error on startup if the dotted entry is listed
           separately.
    
           The contents of the CellAlias file should consist of one line of two
           whitespace-separated columns per alias. The first column is the real
           name of the cell, and the second column is the alias that should be
           created.
    
    
    

    EXAMPLES

           The following CellAlias file:
    
              openafs.org openafs
              uncc.edu uncc
    
           results in the following symbolic links:
    
              /afs/.openafs  ->  /afs/.openafs.org
              /afs/openafs   ->  /afs/openafs.org
              /afs/.uncc     ->  /afs/.uncc.edu
              /afs/uncc      ->  /afs/uncc.edu
