ALIASDB(5)                OpenBSD Programmer's Manual               ALIASDB(5)

NAME
     AliasDB - add alias for an afs cell in dynroot

DESCRIPTION
     The file AliasDB add aliases for afs cellnames in dynroot, useful to add
     readwrite mountpoints in dynroot.

     Each line in the file contains at least two elements with an optional
     third element.  The first element is the cell name to make the alias for.
     The second element is the alias.  The optional third element is describ-
     ing properties of the mountpoint.

     By default, an alias is a readonly mountpoint, which means that afsd will
     use readonly replicas of volumes, if they exist.  If an alias set to
     readwrite, afsd will disregard the readonly replicas and use the read-
     write volumes only.  This will seriously limit performance, but maybe
     necessary to install software packages etc.

     Each line that starts with a `#' is a comment

EXAMPLE
     # This is a comment
     # cell          alias           [property]
     su.se           .su.se          readwrite
     e.kth.se        .e.kth.se       rw
     cs.cmu.edu      cs              readonly
     andrew.cmu.edu  andrew  #andrew is a readonly alias
