    Command:

    sysid

    
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The sysid file records the network interface addresses that the File
           Server (fileserver process) registers in the Volume Location Database
           (VLDB) for the local file server machine.
    
           Each time the File Server restarts, it builds a list of interfaces on
           the local machine by reading the /var/lib/openafs/local/NetInfo file,
           if it exists. If the file does not exist, the File Server uses the list
           of network interfaces configured with the operating system. It then
           removes from the list any addresses that appear in the
           /var/lib/openafs/local/NetRestrict file, if it exists. The File Server
           records the resulting list in the binary-format sysid file and
           registers the interfaces in the VLDB.
    
           When the Cache Manager requests volume location information, the Volume
           Location (VL) Server provides all of the interfaces registered for each
           server machine that houses the volume. This enables the Cache Manager
           to make use of multiple addresses when accessing AFS data stored on a
           multihomed file server machine.
    
    
    

    CAUTIONS

           The sysid file is unique to each file server machine, and must not be
           copied from one machine to another. If it is a common practice in the
           cell to copy the contents of the /var/lib/openafs/local directory from
           an existing file server machine to a newly installed one, be sure to
           remove the sysid file from the new machine before starting the "fs"
           trio of processes, which includes the fileserver process.
    
           A maximum of 15 file server interface addresses can be registered in
           the VLDB.
