unlog - Discards all of the issuer's tokens


unlog [-cell <cell name>+] [-help]

unlog [-c <cell name>+] [-h]


The unlog command by default discards all tokens that the issuer currently holds. To discard tokens for certain cells only, name them with the -cell argument.

Since a token pertains to one client machine only, destroying tokens on one machine has no effect on tokens on another machine.


Specifying one or more cell names can cause a brief authentication outage during which the issuer has no valid tokens in any cell. This is because the command actually discards all tokens and then restores the ones for cells not named by the -cell argument. The outage can sometimes interrupt the operation of jobs that require authentication.


-cell <cell name>+

Specifies each cell for to discard the token. If this argument is omitted, the Cache Manager discards all tokens. Provide the fully qualified domain name, or a shortened form, in which case successful resolution depends on the availability of a name resolution service (such as the Domain Name Service or a local host table) at the time the command is issued.


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