The backup delhost command deletes the indicated Tape Coordinator entry
from the Backup Database. It is then impossible to submit backup
operations to that Tape Coordinator, even if it is still running. To keep
configuration information consistent, also remove the corresponding entry
from the /var/lib/openafs/backup/tapeconfig file on the Tape Coordinator
To list the Tape Coordinator machines and port offsets defined in the
Backup Database, issue the backup listhosts command.
-tapehost <tape machine name>
Specifies the hostname of the machine housing the Tape Coordinator to
-portoffset <TC port offset>
Specifies the port offset number of the Tape Coordinator to delete. If
omitted, it defaults to 0. If provided, it is an integer between 0
(zero) and 58510, and must match the port offset number assigned to the
same combination of Tape Coordinator and tape device or file in the
/var/lib/openafs/backup/tapeconfig file on the Tape Coordinator machine
indicated by the -tapehost argument.
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

Coordinator with port offset 2 on the Tape Coordinator machine
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
